Notes


“War and its production is a suicide economy. We survive on perpetual war. 
Save the children.” - Vivienne Westwood (press statement given originally for the 2021 Stop The War exhibition)

This limited edition giclee was first shown at Stop The War's 2021 exhibition with its proceeds benefitting the movement. It is based on the original ‘Trumpette’ (2019) which was patchwork photocopied onto placards, stapled to plywood and marched through London's anti-Trump protest. Stop the War were one of the organisers of this protest. They have kindly gifted this print to our live auction.

Dame Vivienne Westwood DBE RDI (1941 -2022) was a British fashion designer and activist. Her artistic oeuvre combines text and image, often with a cautionary or directive message about climate change, the economy and war. She has collaborated on anti-arms T-shirts for Warchild (December 2017) and restaged her Serpentine Gallery art exhibition and fashion show, ‘True Punk’ (February 2020) - supporting Julian Assange - inside her Conduit Street boutique on permanent display. Vivienne has protested against Assange’s extradition suspended inside a giant birdcage outside the Old Bailey (July 2020) and created anti-war film for her 80th birthday screened in Piccadilly Circus for CIRCA x CAAT (March 2021). Vivienne has consolidated her ideas in a manifesto called ‘NO MANS LAND’. Using her graphics, Vivienne has designed a set of playing cards as a cultural led economic strategy to save the world. Her works are in the permanent collections of The Victoria & Albert Museum, London Design Museum, London, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and more.
