“Kalos&Klio are important figures in the world of digital art and Net Art today, while through their post pop and post psychedelic explorations they have opened up new avenues in the area of design, interior architecture and illustration. Breaking through the boundaries of the arts Kalos&Klio create ensembles which are deliberately emptied of ideology and which, for precisely this reason, articulate a political discourse. They are intentionally artists of the ‘post’ and the ‘intermediate’, since their works are functional, but retain their validity once their function is exhausted.”
