Black hole (in progress)2016
Since 2009 a sizeable part of the Greek population has been facing the consequences of a severe capitalist-financial crisis. Following a three party agreement between the Greek government, the EU and the IMF, successive austerity packages have dismantled the country’s social fabric. An estimated 23% of Greeks are presently living below the poverty line. Youth unemployment (15-24 years) has reached 62%, while 1.5 million people are currently unemployed. As the recession keeps deepening the circumstances experienced by Greek society are comparable to those of the Second World War.
