Abstract

This article focuses on the Athens Polytechnic, an emblematic site that has been the epicentre of historical ruptures during which it is extensively graffitied. It is based on a corpus consisting of graffiti writings from the particular building during three key moments of crises in the modern history of the country. The article critically examines an architectural drawing of graffiti writings on the Athens Polytechnic and aims to reflect on the methods followed to produce it. By resituating, or rather recomposing, the graffiti written in different times on the walls of the Polytechnic, the article registers the various responses to the overwhelming forces of crises.
