there are countless works of all kinds to be found all over athens – even more so in the crisis since there are at present much bigger concerns than cleaning walls. this project has a distinct focus on the politically contested neighborhood of exarcheia where clean walls are a real rarity. however, kerameios/metaxourgio as well as psirri are at least equally packed with street art and graffiti. this is to provide you with an overview of some of the most important artists and issues represented on the streets of athens.
