#TextMe_PaperFashion is a pop-up exhibition from the Greek cultural organization ATOPOS Contemporary Visual Culture’s Paper Dress Collection. It has been especially created to mark UNESCO’S Athens 2018, World Book Capital, and the Hellenic Centre’s 25th Anniversary.
The exhibition investigates the relationship between text and paper in fashion through selected objects from the collection. Disposable Paper dresses from the 1960s, some printed with press cutting from American and English newspapers, are displayed alongside garments made of recycled pages from account books such as the rare Japanese shifu underclothes from the Edo period.
