The proposed research project focuses on the intricate ways in which artistic practices, exhibitions and cultural institutions dealt with issues of migration in Greece in the period between 2015 and 2018. In an attempt to respond to images and experiences of the so-called ‘refugee crisis’ and their implications, individual artists, museums and cultural initiatives have renegotiated modes of representation and concepts of dislocation, hospitality and agency in the framework of globalized (forced) displacement and socio-political upheaval. These aesthetic and theoretical shifts will be explored by means of analyzing specific case studies and employing current concepts from cultural analysis, globalization and migration studies. In addition, the study of audiences’ reception of and involvement in the analyzed practices, exhibitions and institutional strategies will afford a deeper understanding of the social and cultural impact of contemporary art in this context.
