The UNLOCKED book, Atopos’ attempt to unlock the depiction of the Naked Body in the post-photographic, digital era, will be travelling to the Frankfurt Book Fair 2016 through Idea books, Atopos’ international distributor (Hall 4.1 L75). Based on an original idea and research by Vassilis Zidianakis the 512-page publication presents the work of more than 140 international photographers and artists and it takes the form of an original composition of images sourced from the Internet and our constantly evolving relationship with photography and image.
The new publication has already been presented in a number of exhibitions and fairs, such as the Printed Matter’s NY Art Book Fair 2016 in MoMA PS1, Offprint London 2016 in Tate Modern, Cosmos and 2016 Book Awards in Rencontres d’Arles and the Unseen Photo Fair 2016 whereas in Amsterdam.
The Frankfurt Book Fair is the world’s largest trade fair for books, based on the number of publishing companies represented, and the second largest trade fair for books, based on the number of visitors. It is held annually in mid-October at the Frankfurt Trade Fair grounds in Frankfurt am Main, Germany and attracts more than 286,000 visitors and 7,000 exhibitors. The first three days of the fair are restricted exclusively to trade visitors whereas the general public usually attend on the last two.
