As part of the Occupy Atopos project ( 8-13 October), the conceptual art duo FYTA are occupying the premises of Atopos cvc for a week of creative disorder. To celebrate five years since its inception, FYTA are organising an exhibition of their work that will also include performances, lectures and discussions from October 8 until October 13. The exhibition will include artworks by FYTA, pieces from their personal archive and portraits of the duo by various artists. The week will start with an interactive happening on October 8 during which their hot-off-the-press The Black book of FYTA [Nefeli Publications, Ed. by Athanasios Anagnostopoulos] will be launched. The book includes texts on politics in art by academics and artists from Greece and the UK. FYTA’s work deals with identity politics, questions of avant-garde art in times of crisis and the possibility of political activism through creative means. Their work has been exhibited in Greece, the UK, Germany and Switzerland. FYTA are currently working as curators for the Athens Biennale 2018.
