The Museum of Nonhumanity, Goodbye Things, Nanette & Good On You (B+A Bulletin #150)

Hi friends.
How are you all? What’s new? You look great by the way…

We’re spending much of our time across London, Shanghai and LA getting our asses kicked by young boxers, runners, track superstars and yogis. So if you see us looking ripped, please don’t be alarmed.

Woah – 150 editions of B+A Bulletin for your headtops over the last 3 years or so. Don’t say we don’t treat ya 😉

B+A Brilliance

Sorry folks, this one’s a little heavy… On a sunny seaside weekend in Margate, UK, Luke came across the Museum of Nonhumanity; a collection of essays and artworks considering how societies have used the word ‘nonhuman’ to justify slavery, oppression and genocide. Usually based in Norway, the Museum has taken up temporary residence at the Turner Contemporary on the south coast. It’s a chilling show, but an all-too-important reminder of our capacity for dehumanization. Check it (then get an ice cream to cheer yourself up).

B+A Books etc.

Fumio Sasaki is a writer in his thirties who lives in a tiny studio in Tokyo with three shirts, four pairs of trousers, four pairs of socks and not much else. A few years ago, he realised that owning so much stuff was weighing him down – so he started to get rid of it – like a lot of us consciously and unconsciously are doing rn. More doesn’t equal better, ever. Goodbye, Things: On Minimalist Living is ace. Read it (then give it away).

B+A Big Up

Okay, so several B+A-ers have called this one of the most the most powerful and difficult stand up ‘comedies’ on Netflix. Its called Nanette – it’s all about gender, sexuality, art, abuse, everything – and a total masterclass in storytelling. Check it!

B+A Babble

Ethical fashion is here to stay it seems, but that doesn’t mean it’s always easy to find out the truth about our favourite brands. This free app called Good On You, is now making it easier for shoppers to cut through the BS and shop according to their principles. The app brings together publicly available data on thousands of fashion brands and rates them out of five according to the impact they have on people, animals and the planet.

B+A Bye…

Same place, same time next week people?
We looking forward to seeing you, for real, for real. Keep showing up (you know if you fancy it).
