ANOMO is an arts-based research project that explored the intersection between cultural regeneration and the economic and social upheaval in contemporary Athens. Through a series of conversations with visual artists and curators, the research investigated the dynamics of an emerging cultural capital in a city full of contrasts, and the capacity of crisis to be a furtive breeding ground for the arts. Realised in the form of an art publication, it aimed to capture the liminal phase of an evolving cultural landscape that seems relatively random, raw and “lawless”.
