Shape of the state in crisis

Shape of the State in Crisis is a series of visualisations attempting to capture some of the ruptures taking place in the relationship between the Greek state, the population and the international political and financial pressures as materialised in the space of Athens. In the first instance this will comprise a timeline of the crisis from 2008 until the present moment listing, among others, large demonstrations and protests, new policies and austerity packages and major financial events. Related to and informed by the ethnographic fieldwork in the other research strands, it will then focus on data in the areas of the changing everyday experiences in public spaces, governance, policing and violence in the city and the privatisation of infrastructure.
