GesamtAtelier is a platform by and for practitioners from several creative fields who collaborate towards the conception and realisation of interdisciplinary projects. Inspired by a play on the word “Gesamtkunstwerk” (total work of art) the team aspires to push the boundaries of several domains, mediums and genres: design, contemporary dance, sound design, performance art, curating, architecture and the visual arts. Based in London and Athens GesamtAtelier adapts to the nature of each project: performances, exhibitions, installations, workshops etc. The creators involved for every scheme intertwine their diverse background, theoretical and practical skills creating hybrids between their respective practices.
