Dr. Alexandros Papadopoulos is performance artist, writer and ‘archeologist of dreams’. He has contributed video-performance, audio-visual installations and photography in the Athens-based annual exhibition: Civil Disobedience. His upcoming work is called: ‘Come on Darling, Domesticate These Industrial Rabbits’. Papadopoulos plays with queer imagination, the aesthetics of crime and the hedonic cultures of escapism. He has frequently collaborated with digital artists, popular magazines and theatrical festivals. He seeks to find an artistic practice that will transcend the contemporary experiences of fear, lust and vulnerability. His latest academic publication is Performing The Homo-Nazi Effect: Gay Neo-Nazism, Digital Drag Attack, and the Postcinematic Cultures of Crisis
