Atopia comes from the Greek noun a-topon, which literally means without a place.
Atopia is an artist initiative dedicated to the development of experimental film & video art in Norway. It is a research center and a Gallery focusing on artists film and video works.
Through its various projects Atopia has organized exhibitions, screenings, forums and workshops as well as publications, both inside and outside of Norway and over the years it has become a base for information and advice for artists working within the field.
Atopia's office is equipped with production facilities and we rent out affordable production/exhibition equipment to artists and art organizations.
