MASKBOOK SPECIAL COVID-19
What does this pandemic reveal? What “after-pandemic” world do you want?
Since 2015, Maskbook project has taken global creative action on the link between health and the environment, using the protective mask as a symbol.
Maskbook has organised more than 200 workshops around the world. They are all on standby... So individual and online action takes over!
After air pollution, the Covid-19 pandemic is exposing this link on an unprecedented scale and galvinising us into action.
Art of Change 21 is launching the COVID-19 Maskbook campaign to collectively create the largest international gallery of masked, creative and committed engaged portraits on the theme of COVID-19.
What does this pandemic reveal? What “after-pandemic” world do you want? So many starting points for self-expression through your mask! Your voice matters!
join in! it only takes a few minutes to sign up!
Make your mask, express your creative talent, and share your response to the current health and environmental crises. Express how you feel about COVID-19 through a circular economy approach – make your mask from waste materials or digitally.
Enter the Maskbook gallery with a quality photo, plain background, in landscape format, HERE!
CAUTION PLEASE: don't use a real protective mask! During this pandemic they are reserved for frontline workers. Don't use a used one either because it still poses a risk of contamination. Make your own mask (paper, cardboard, fabric...).
Family portraits are welcome! Given the confinement situation, Maskbook has changed general rules. It suggests you make portraits of couples, families or roommates confined together. Support your children in their creative process to help them deliver a meaningful message through their mask.
The homepage in our Maskbook.org portrait gallery is dedicated to showcasing the most beautiful portraits from the COVID-19 campaign.
Also post your mask on your social networks, with the hastags #maskbookcovid19 & #maskbook.
The MASKBOOK COVID-19 portraits will then be exhibited after the epidemic. We are currently in discussion with several well-known locations.
In February, a first Maskbook action was launched in China by the artist Wen Fang, co-creator of Maskbook, and her collective Windowfish Artist. Hundreds of participants expressed themselves through masked portraits and messages on Chinese social media.

Our health depends on our environment. But what do we do for it, are we doing enough for the environment?
