LIFE SPORT is both a sweatpants shop and an art space based in Athens. We aim for economic independence by generating alternative arts funding through the sales of sweatpants. Hosting presentations, spoken word and services, LS is invested in the invention of life as sport, collective acts of coping and collaborating with artists that share our ambition to reclaim independence and self-empowerment.

LIFE SPORT sweatpants are criticial wearables made of 70% cotton and 30% polyester and are entirely produced in Athens. This product is the result of a year-long research and observation of Athenian lifestyles, taking sweatpants and their wearers as the starting point for a portrait of a city. Sweatpants are everywhere, they defy notions of social stratification, gender and age. Sweatpants unite contradiction, they are a symbol of defeat or paralysis for some, a statement of ultimate resistance and emancipation for others. At the very least, they are really comfortable, fit everyone and wash at 40 degrees.
