Atlas Horribilis proposes a new narrative form – the “novel of the inauthentic” – comprising a non-linear montage of findings, reproductions, and documentary material. It includes cut outs from books, newspaper and magazine articles, details of news stories and comics, museum material and amateur photographs relating to a series of uncanny, occult, terrifying paranormal phenomena. This comprehensive and “accidental” collection is drawn exclusively from local sources a fact which accentuates the local cultural framework of the mediascape.
Nadia Argyropoulou, Marina Vranopoulou, Malvina Panagiotidi, Giasemi Perou, and Yorgos Tzirtzilakis worked on the research and collection of the content and its narrative on a book form.
