Punk’s not dead. In fact, it’s more alive than ever. What started as a weird subculture in mid-’70s London and New York has echoed in music, fashion, art and design ever since. Punk London is a fortieth-anniversary series celebrating the city’s gobby rock ’n’ roll heritage. It’s organised (yes, they’re aware of the irony) by some major players on the London arts scene, including the British Fashion Council, the BFI and the Museum of London. Here are some highlights.
