Aesthetics of Crisis

http://aestheticsofcrisis.org/

aesthetics of crisis is an ethnographic research project located at the intersection of urban theory, visual culture, and social movement studies.

this project looks at the crisis from a micro-perspective focusing on the symbolic practice of street art. it aims to carve out the various and complex iconographies and aesthetics of the crisis by analysing political urban art in contemporary athens.

apart from building an extensive photo archive and exploring the local geographies of street art, i am coducting interviews with street artists, activists and researchers. this website is meant to make my field data accessible and part of the ongoing discussions surrounding the crisis. on a broader level this will enable a dialogue about how political discourses manifest in urban public space and are negotiated through critical spatial practices.
