Andrea Crews was created ten years ago, in 2002, by Maroussia Rebecq at the Palais de Tokyo, with an event that was to pave the way for the future: a community project for the recycling of second-hand clothes. Since then, Andrea Crews has grown into a many-faceted collective bringing together the world of fashion and the world of art.
The Andrea Crews workshop stands for resistance and freedom, true to its slogan, “Fashion Art Activism”. Well-equipped and well-supported, the collective has documented all its actions, collections, exhibitions, performances, travels, etc. These images, full of colour and life, trace the steps of their journey.
The book, I AM ANDREA CREWS, tells the story of the collective and shows the central role it has played in the creative and alternative scene at the beginning of the new millennium.
More than a description, I AM ANDREA CREWS is a manifesto.
With essays by: Lauren Bastide with an interview with Sarah Andelman (Fashion); Florence Parot with an interview with Jérôme Sans and Claire Staebler (Art); Lorent Idir with an interview by Dominique Babin (Activism).
