A more recent event has again propelled Dame Vivienne to the front lines in the purist of punk spirit when her and Malcolm McLaren’s son  (Sex Pistols) decided to burn a punk memorabilia collection estimated at 5 million pounds. Not only protesting the catastrophic state of the environment and consumerist capitalism, the event was also a refusal to accept the inauguration of Punk into mainstream institutions of culture such as the British museum.
