Spyros Aggelopoulos x Apostolos Mitropoulos, Amusementorium Kaftan
Limited-edition kaftan created by visual artist Spyros Aggelopoulos in collaboration with fashion designer Apostolos Mitropoulos. Featuring Aggelopoulos’ shadow puppets from Amusementorium, a project presented during Athens Biennale 2018.
Amusementorium is a tribute to the great storytelling tradition of Greek shadow-puppet theatre and americanized popular media. For Aggelopoulos, pop culture is the mythology of our times, and as such it has the power to help people understand themselves and their place in the world. The result is a very personal and transparent visual language that explores the role of “folk art” in the 21st century through an imaginative blend of East and West.
