Athens – Birthplace of our Globalising Wall: Our second contribution to the Witte de With Review

Athens: Birthplace of our globalising wall

This is the second article that vitalspace.org and I have contributed to the Witte de With Review (an initiative of Rotterdam-based Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art). Readers of this blog will recognise a theme that is close to our hearts: the globalisation of harsh divisions (for a reminder see herehere and here). The added twist here is that the story of our globalising wall, which interestingly began in the streets of Athens, in December 1944, is now coming full circle.
