“Child Labour” is a mural that highlights the connection between child labor and our consumption (United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 8.7). Cosmetics, smartphones and electric vehicles may be emblems of the modern world, but the sparkle added to our makeup or the batteries in our electronics are frequently powered by minerals, like mica or cobalt. These minerals are mined by children laboring in slave-like conditions in Congo, India or Madagascar.
