100 Days Of Active Resistance

On the 8th of September, Vivienne Westwood Anglomania + Lee  are launching a spectacular new online installation entitled "100 Days Of Resistance". The project, which encourages communication and individuality, invites the public to submit an artwork or photograph that best represents Vivienne's principle idea of Active Resistance.

Says Vivienne "It is that you get out of life what you put in and that the real experience of the world involves thinking. It is not enough to follow world politics, see films and read the prize-winning best seller. This is superficial, you need to go deep in order to understand who you are, what the world is and how things could be better. This involves culture which can only be acquired by self-education: human beings should mirror the world".

From the public's submissions, one image will be selected each day and shared online. Then, at the close of a 100 days, the 100 chosen images will be chosen to become part of a London exhibition dedicated to the project.

Vivienne Westwood will celebrate the launch of the website and their collaboration with Lee at their London W1 stores with an exhibition of Vivienne Westwood denim pieces from past to present on the 8th of September coinciding with Vogue’s Fashion Night Out.

So stand up and speak out! Take a photo, write a slogan, create an image and show your active resistance. Visit www.ar100days.com from the 8th of September and make a submission.
