Street Artivism on Athenian Walls – A cognitive semiotic analysis of metaphor and narrative in street art
How do Athenian street artists use creativity in activism or activism in their creative practices to construct forms of protest and resistance? What kinds of strategies do they employ? How are sociopolitical issues framed in the messages conveyed by street artworks? Georgios Stampoulidis explores such questions with the help of cognitive semiotics, approaching street art as an artistic practice that represents a compelling way to express sociopolitical criticism in times of crisis.
