Rethinking our Relationship with Things 再思我們與事物的關係

In his latest book, Secondhand: Travels in the Global Garage Sale, Adam Minter takes us on a journey into the surprising afterlives of our former possessions. Sooner or later, all of us are faced with things we no longer need or want. But when we drop our old clothes and other items off at a local donation center, where do they go? And in a world that craves shiny and new, is there room for it all? Adam Minter offers hard truths about why we keep buying more things, and hopeful answers about what really needs to change to build a sustainable future free of excess stuff. He is joined in conversation by Hong Kong-based artist and product designer Kevin Cheung, who works exclusively with upcycled and re-used raw materials. In ENGLISH, and available online 24 hours later with CHINESE subtitles.
