The aim of Topos is to serve as a platform for publishing artist books by emerging artists and to convey a diversity of artistic practices through the book format.
Topos is a greek word that means place. As a publisher we want to mobilize concepts of place through the book format. We believe that artist books have a potential to enter a discourse of place in a time when it is becoming more than a location on a map or in a landscape, but rather a term linked with identity, form and presence.
The artists perspectives might then be understood as a place in itself or the artist book as a place or medium for artistic ideas or concepts.
