Aristide Antonas©Zoe Hatzyannaki, nominiert


Antonas is considered internationally to be one of the most intellectually experienced players in the current debate on culture-critical theory development in today’s fragile Europe.

A major challenge in current discussions about architecture and cities is critical confrontation with the increasingly stronger neo-liberal occupation mechanisms in Europe. Aristide Antonas, Greek Architect and Philosopher, was one of the first people to examine this complex situation actively and ask about the potential, for instance by focusing on specific issues of social housing or the privatisation of public spaces in Greece.
