A few works about our organization and our independent publishing house:
THE ΤΕΛΟΣ SOCIETY, Arts & Culture Research Lab Observatorium is a nonprofit organisation registered in Athens, Greece. Through the filter of philosophy, science, technology, and spirituality, TTS focuses on the transdisciplinary production of speculative knowledge as that is perceived in the creative arts & culture in Greece and abroad. TTS advocates for a viable visual-diet, an ecology of art production and equal opportunity under the larger umbrella of ECOTOPIA: Visual, Mental and Environmental Economy, Ecology and Ecosystemology. By connecting the North with the South and the East with the West, we endeavour to foster exchanges, collaborations, and publications in the Balkans, the rest of Europe, in the wider region of the Mediterranean, and MENA.
In these times of unprecedented crises it is critical that we collectively develop a set of orienting coordinates, that help us navigate the uncertain and complex terrain of the inevitable transition. We find in this time of instant messaging, endless pixels of information, sponsored research posts and labyrinthine conspiracy theories, Science (and even Truth) has failed to guide us away from the sheer face of extinction. To address this we must develop heuristics that can function as a better set of truth criteria for our narratives - thought-forms that govern every aspect of our lives. Narratives are not only sense making machines in the face of uncertainty, they are the very substance of our social reality; and so it is critical that we can understand what cultural evolution means.
