The work of Konstantinos Papacharalampos in the fields of poetry, performance and installation explores a future of expanding and liberating possibilities, where technological advances, the environment and human rights find a new balance of co-existence. Born in Kavala, Greece, in 1988, Konstantinos released poetry project K - On (Entefktirio ed., 2011) and took part in 1st Festival of New Writers organized by Greek National Centre of Books. His experimental poems have appeared in leading Greek magazines and installed in situ in Action Field Kodra.

In 2015 the Futures: Poetry of the Greek Crisis anthology of UK publisher Penned in the Margins (edited by literary theorist Theodoros Chiotis) featured a poem from Είναι. Other poems from Konstantinos have been translated in Russian and associated with the financial crisis and the Greek avant-garde scene. Selected work was also translated in German for Dichtung mit Biss (Freie Universität Berlin: ed. Romiosini/ CeMoG, 2018). In parallel to his poetry he works in urban development and regeneration in London, UK.
