BlahBlahBlah  is Atopos project that focuses on text and speech. Curated by Vassilis Zidianakis, it is inspired by the research for the Unlocked publication and includes a number of events, lectures, presentations, special projects, performances, workshops and reading nights in Atopos premises. BlahBlahBlah opened with The Closet / Reading Nights titled Body-Type : Post-Trauma in the context of the celebrations for European Heritage Days 2015.

A series of texts on Violence and Tolerance, the topic of this year’s celebrations, were translated in Greek for the first time and had been read during the Closet / Reading Nights in Atopos. An oratorio by Anne Carson, a short essay by Roland Barthes, a number of Wayne Koestenbaum’ s quotes and a collection of tweets on violence and trauma were included among the texts.

The Closet  has been presented in Andreas Melas & Helena Papadopoulos gallery and in the House of Cyprus and it has been supported by Outset Hellas and NEON organization from 2012 to 2015.
