GREEKVILLE: fragments of memory
The exhibition touches upon issues of migration, self-identity and the ‘architecture of belonging’. It is an architectural and anthropological reading of three American Greektowns;
Detroit, Chicago and Tarpon Springs. These three cases provide a unique platform for cultural observations and architectural speculations. We treat them as a medium for criticism and manifestation of the innovative, hybrid and sometimes bizarre concepts of ‘Greekness’ within the north American urban context. In so doing, we aim to provoke a discussion on issues of migration and identity by contemplating on the fusion between modern Greek and American culture.
