The Guardian published an article on the Extinction Marathon which took place at the Serpentine Gallery in London last weekend.
Cultural spaces (galleries, museums, concert halls) can make space for challenging subjects and the Serpentine Marathon is a great mechanism, but this feels behind the curve – the extinction issue is something scientists have been asessing and analysing and publishing on for a good while now. Just because the Serpentine got some big names on a platform to speak about the issue for 10 mins each doesn’t make it news.
