Arts & Culture Research Lab Observatorium


THE ΤΕΛΟΣ SOCIETY, Arts & Culture Research Lab Observatorium is a nonprofit organisation registered in Athens, Greece. Through the filter of philosophy, science, technology, and religion, TTS focuses on the  transdisciplinary production of 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. 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. All TTS research will be published and distributed. [TTS]


THE ΤΕΛΟΣ SOCIETY is a registered nonprofit organization in Athens, Greece. It was founded in 2019 and it is privately supported by friends and donors of TTS. It is governed by the founding member in close collaboration with the  TTS Ambassador, the TTS Financial and Legal advisors of the Board.  

Arts & Culture Research Lab Observatorium

This being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor... Welcome and entertain them all. Treat each guest honourably. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.


What ecological thought must do, then, is unground the human by forcing it back onto the ground, which is to say, standing on a gigantic object called Earth inside a gigantic entity called biosphere

Timothy Morton



First-hand knowledge is the ultimate basis of intellectual life. To a large extent book-learning conveys second-hand information, and as such can never rise to the importance of immediate practice… What the learned world tends to offer is one second-hand scrap of information illustrating ideas derived from another second-hand scrap of information. The second-handedness of the learned world is the secret of its mediocrity. It is tame because it has never been scared by facts. 

Alfred North Whitehead
