The City at a Time of Crisis was a collective project that traces and researches the effects of the financial, sovereign and social crisis on public spaces in Athens, Greece. With its four interconnected research strands, the project looked at emergent socialities and shifting interaction in public spaces – from the Athenian metro to decaying Olympic infrastructure, from the forceful eviction of social spaces to the ever-shrinking spaces available to migrants in the city, and beyond.

The City at a Time of Crisis project was completed in May 2014. This site will no longer be updated, but if you wish to contact members of the collective feel free to email us on:
