My research project focuses on contemporary queer and feminist graffiti in the city of Athens, Greece. By examining political graffiti as artifacts in their own right and documenting the changes occurring in the urban landscape, their meanings and symbolism, I explore the materiality and temporality of graffiti as a practice of resistance and as a performative political act embedded in the narrative of disruption and of challenging normativity.
