Margarita Athanasiou is an artist and writer based in Athens, Greece. She graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art in London specializing in New Media and has since participated in exhibitions and screenings both in Greece and abroad. She is a passionate memer and the author of 6 poetry publications including “Nouns,” her first book, published in 2018 by Dolce Publications. Margarita is the co-founder and director of the Athens Art Book Fair, an Onasis AIR fellow and an active participant in many independent projects in Athens. Athanasiou’s works are research-based, always begin as texts and then take the form of publications, prints, memes or visual essays. She combines autobiography, cultural criticism and forgotten female histories to create poetic, humorous narratives that transcend the division between high and low culture and bridge the gap between political engagement and personal exploration.
