Abstract

How do communities (fully fledged, active or imagined) perform citizenship? How do recent policies on urban planning and economic development in the city impact public space as the very site where citizenship is claimed, performed and experienced? What is the relationship between practices of memory (from personal memory, to collective and institutional) and acts of citizenship? How does the memory and the archivization of community life (in other words, the creation of a communal past) help the emergence of new demands for inclusion, rights and agonistic togetherness? Drawing inspiration from the colloquium that took place on 11 February 2023 at the National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST), we invited the participants of the colloquium to reflect on the notion of social citizenship in Greece. The contributions include an interview with the curators of the event Dimitris Papanikolaou and Theophilos Tramboulis with the Reviews+ co-editor Kristina Gedgaudait as well as critical reflections and creative writing interventions by eight of the participants: Christos Chrysanthopoulos, Sofia Dona, Brikena Gishto, Pafsanias Karathanasis, Erofili Kokkali, Iris Lykourioti, Anna Papaeti and Theo Prodromidis.
