DESTEFASHION-COLLECTION: ATLAS. Benaki Museum, Athens, 2016. Published by Deste Foundation Centre for Contemporary Art, Athens. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 428 pp. 29 x 25 cm. ISBN 9786185039196 In English.
Publisher's description: For eight years, fueled by Dakis Joannou's belief that "although art is considered eternal and fashion ephemeral, both are contemporary creative processes," creators from art, design, literature, film, architecture and fashion selected items from each year's fashion collection and interpreted them in the lexicon of their own discipline. Edited and designed by M/M (Paris), this publication follows the conceptual framework of the destefashioncollection exhibition at the Benaki Museum in Athens that presented the eight "capsules" (as each selection was called) -- M/M (Paris), 2007; Juergen Teller, 2008; Helmut Lang, 2009; Patrizia Cavalli, 2010; Charles Ray, 2011; Athina Rachel Tsangari, 2012; Diller Scofidio + Renfro, 2013; and Maria Papadimitriou, 2014 -- as a fluid archipelago, emphasizing the shifting relationship between the various capsules and, therefore, the art and fashion worlds as a whole. An essay by Germano Celant charts Joannou's remarkable journey.
