Departing from the interactive installation “The Disappearing Wall,” organized by the Goethe-Institut and presented in different European cities (including Thessaloniki) in Fall 2020, miss dialectic curates Pixels, an art publication that unfolds both as an online and an offline project. With the aim to unravel the connection between Thessaloniki’s urban imprint and its visual arts community, miss dialectic invited twelve artists from the “To Pikap Community” to open a dialogue with quotes that found their place in “The Disappearing Wall.”
The city, architecture and nature, domesticity, sensuality and affection, everyday rituals and ruptures, were only a few of the themes that emerged. Works in progress, drawings, photographs, and collages form the backbone of a collective publication project devised by twelve graphic designers living in Thessaloniki and orchestrated by Post-Spectacular Office. Pixels, comprising twelve hybrid artists’ books, aims to mark a certain moment in the creative history of Thessaloniki.
Each artist, similarly to a single pixel, allows us to experience a sample of their worlds, adding to a fragmented but authentic image.
