The workshop aims to explore the possibilities of a final publication for Goethe-Institut Thessaloniki’s Artecitya.
In the era of the digital, what could a printed publication offer to an artistic project? 
Does print media still have a place in the future of publishing?
Which are the limits and which are the advantages?
How could digital media and print be combined to form a new way of reading publications?
The workshop is not only addressed to graphic designers, but also to artists, media designers, architects, other creatives and to anyone with a special interest in printed media. The goal is to explore the possibilities of publication design, printing methods, combinations of different media, binding and folding techniques, and finally discuss the power of the book as object and its potential of creating an experience.
The workshop developed several approaches and concepts for the Artecitya publication. 

Participants: Elsa Alatsidou, Maita Chatziioannidou, Myrto Chatzikyrou, Giannis Chinis, Sofia Kalvourtzi, Georgia Karasavvidou, Anna Kavvasiadi, Spiros Kazantzis, Eleni Klossa-Sotiriou, Chryssa Kotoula, Konstantinos Kotoulas, Maria Kyrou, Stella Mastorosteriou, Meliza Papamitrou, Aspasia Peppa, Katerina Siosiou, Evanthia Stavrou, Dimitris Tzikopoulos
