Atopos Contemporary Visual Culture
ATOPOS cvc is a non-profit, cultural organization interested in the expression and adornment of the human body. It researches and initiates innovative projects of contemporary visual culture in an ‘atopic’ manner. The word ‘atopos’, from the ancient Greek “άτοπος”, refers to that which is the strange, the unwonted, the eccentric and the unclassifiable. It was founded in 2003 by Stamos Fafalios and Vassilis Zidianakis. With their varying backgrounds in art, architecture, fashion, and anthropology, the two merged their interests to create an interdisciplinary platform for the arts.
