The campaign “X them out! A Black Map of Athens” is designed to pinpoint and highlight the unseen criminality related to racist attacks in the public space.
The Golden Dawn trial has brought to light dozens of racist crimes, mostly against migrants and refugees. However, the full extent of its criminal, racist activity is not adequately known. With this campaign, we attempt to establish a topography of racist violence. We seek to make its dark dimensions and its deadly nature more familiar to the general public. To this end, we want to create, with the valuable support of 25 visual artists, an antiracist map of our city.
Racist violence is invisible only when we do not wish to see it, when we avoid confronting it. This year, 2019, is the crucial, final year of the most important and biggest trials of our time. We have tried to visualise just a small part of this “topography of violence” that has its origins in Golden Dawn and fascism, in order to contribute to acquainting the general public with their crimes and in punishing their murderous activity.
