100 Years of Active Resistance by Vivienne Westwood

Dame Viv’s been busy recently down at Occupy London, supporting the protesters, but she’s (as always) been ahead of the protest curve for quite a while. This is her timely new book of 100 great images on active resistance, This is what she told Amazon…. ‘The principle idea of Active Resistance is that you get out of life what you put in and that real experience of the world involves thinking. It is not enough to follow world politics, see films and read the prize-winning best sellers. 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.’ Well  said ma’am.

    I love it. I had no idea she was supporting the Occupy London movement but I’m thrilled that she is. I love her designs and I love her perspective.
