TOPOS Publications is a publishing initiative created by artists Åsne Eldøy and Arild Våge Berge in 2017, located both in Bergen and Oslo, Norway. Since 2018 Topos have been collaborating with designer Mads Andersen.
We work with emerging artists and a diversity of publishing projects. The purpose of Topos is to serve as a platform for publishing artist books and to convey a variety of artistic practices through the book format.
Topos is a Greek word that means place. As a publisher we want to mobilize concepts of place through the book format. We believe that books have a potential to enter a discourse of place in a time when it is becoming more than a location on a map or in a landscape, but rather a term linked with identity, form and presence.
