Poets, The


The process of deciding on a field of research around identity and poetry was founded on my reflections to a certain topic -questioning the socially imposed silence of homeless people- and the assumptions emerging when trying to approach this topic myself. Conveying my research question to the public was a way to understand how valid these assumptions were and create an archive of potential answers. For this purpose I asked several people on the street to “label” the authors of 4 short poems, two written by noted Greek poets, one by a Greek commercial singer and one by a person experiencing homelessness.
