About

If the cities are the sum of our desires, what can machines tell us about it? An exhibition about the unbounded modernism of the Greek architect Constantinos A. Doxiadis.


The exhibition examines one of the most pressing and transformative conditions of the last half century — the overlapping and intertwining of cities, people, information, and computation. The first episode of the exhibition covers the prescient use of computers in the 1960s by the Greek architect and internationally celebrated planner of cities, Constantinos A. Doxiadis. The second traces these computational practices to present day Athens, with new research into the physical form, technical administration, and territorial spread of city and state border management systems.

Each episode pivots around a population group and a form of information collection. In the 1960s, Doxiadis Associates conducted The Human Community, a survey of Athenian residents that gauged their adaptation to the emerging pace and spaces of the postwar city. The exhibition also includes The New Human Community, a critical retracing of Doxiadis’ survey conducted with recently arrived migrants and refugees. The exhibition reveals how our contemporary and postwar periods are linked through techniques of data extraction and accumulation. Together these episodes chart Greece’s emerging informational geography, locating its boundaries and borders and the data subjects they engender.
