Doulos predominantly engages on research trajectories under the umbrella of Expodium – an ‘urban do tank’ that utilizes artistic means to address urban challenges and the ever-changing nature of cities.

He has presented collaborative projects at the Trafó House of Contemporary Arts (Budapest), Bildmuseet (Umeå), participated at the Impakt Festival (Utrecht), the Athens Biennale: #4 AGORA and the 53rd October Salon and has lead workshops for UNIDEE – Cittadelartte Pistoletto Foundation and the University of the Arts, Uniarts Helsinki among others.

He is a co-curator of ‘Unmaking The Netherlands’ program initiated by Expodium and a co-editor of the Unmaking or How To Rethink Urban Narratives publication. He teaches periodically at the University of the Arts, Uniarts in Helsinki. He works collaboratively.
