‘The principal idea of Active Resistance is that you get out of life what you put in and that real experience of the world involves thinking’ – Vivienne Westwood.
100 days of positive thought, active change, speaking up and being heard. From small personal actions to larger collective moments of change, Vivienne Westwood encourages communication and individuality through an online installation, sharing interpretations of Vivienne Westwood’s Active Resistance.
‘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.’
Every day for one hundred days, one image representing your ideas of Active Resistance in the world will be selected from submissions and shared online. At the close of 100 days, the 100 chosen images will become a part of an itinerant exhibition dedicated to the project. So stand up and speak out! Take a photo, write a slogan, create an image or an artwork and show us your Active Resistance!
The installation commenced on September 28th 2010, with the 100 days coming to a close on January 5th 2011.
If you are able to support the campaign with a special contribution please let us know so we are then able to feature an article on our news page and a post on the campaign Facebook page and the official Vivienne Westwood fan page.
