Idea Code 16132

The new publication from ATOPOS attempts to “unlock” the depiction of the naked body in the post-photographic, digital era. Based on an original idea and research by Vassilis Zidianakis, the book’s more than 500 pages constitutes a recording of a new visual language that has emerged from contemporary digital platforms and other forms of social media. From Ren Hang’s raw, avant-garde photography and the hedonistic, vibrant images of Maisie Cousins, to Robert Wilson’s unconventional video portraits of Lady Gaga, the volume presents works by 145 international photographers and artists, including Cheyenne Sophia, Jacopo Benassi, and Kostis Fokas.
