This is one of our favorite cultural events of the season.
Beauty, sensuality, violence and humor used to take a whole different meaning in front of Helmut Newton’s camera. He photographed a different type of woman; a woman that is sexy, powerful, provocative and maybe controlling.
The photographer’s work that has marked the 20th century and often shocked the audience, is being celebrated at the Onassis Cultural Center from this Tuesday, November 13th, with a retrospective exhibition dedicated to every aspect of Newton’s vision. Don’t miss it!

KATE: THE KATE MOSS BOOK
In case you were wondering what is it that makes this book so special, besides the fact that it is about our favorite Kate, we have to tell you that it is created by Kate Moss herself. In collaboration with the polymath creative director Fabien Baron, Jess Hallett and Jefferson Hack, she presents a highly personal retrospective of her career from the very beginning, ever since she posed for Corinne Day, objected to every 90’s amazonian supermodel and starred in the most iconic campaigns of Calvin Klein.
Model, fashion designer, muse, icon, Kate Moss has so many identities as well as talents. She has been posing for the past two decades in front of the most important artists of our time and continues to amaze us. KATE: The Kate Moss Book will be released with eight unique covers and will contain photos of Craig McDean, David Sims, Hedi Slimane, Juergen Teller, Mario Sorrenti, Mario Testino, Mert & Marcus, Nick Knight, Patrick Demarchelier, Peter Lindbergh, Steven Klein, Terry Richardson and many others.
The book has just gone out in greek bookstores and costs $85. A must-have for every fashion lover.

JAN FABRE: “The Power of Theatrical Madness”
Four hours and twenty minutes of theatrical quizzes. “The Power of Theatrical Madness”, is a historical performance and an international breakthrough as it was quite different than everything else we had ever seen when it first came out in 1984. It combines the former glory of the 19th century theatre with a story about the contemporary economy of illusions. Wagner’s and Strauss’ music mixed with minimal sounds of Wim Mertens will complete the dramatics. On November 14th and 15th at Megaron, The Athens Concert Hall.
