Abstract

I am the founding member of the artist-led collective Environmental Resistance. Working under the name of Environmental Resistance, this publication represents a collaboration with the activist group No Al Carbone ('No to Coal'), who are a group of environmental activists from Brindisi, Puglia. This publication was dedicated to No Al Carbone and was
intended to provide the activists with a ‘toolkit’ for engaging in advocacy debates with public or state officials in the Brindisi region. In the No Al Carbone, Brindisi publication, meaning in the photographs of the polluted Brindisi Industrial Zone, is anchored to a series of captions alluding to various scientific studies, which point towards Brindisi having elevated rates of cancer, COPD, congenital birth defects, when compared to other regions in Italy and beyond.
