‘The ancient Greek word  OIKOS, (ancient Greek: οἶκος, plural: οἶκοι; English prefix: eco- for ecology and economics) refers to three related but distinct concepts: the family, the family's property, and the house.’

Written while visiting Greece during the summer of 2019, Chloe Tsolakoglou’s OIKOS signals to the eros of the quotidian & violences of the state, while contesting the linguistic entanglement of the family, the extension of property, and the question of home.

Chloe Tsolakoglou is a Greek-American writer who grew up in Athens, Greece. They graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz, with a degree in Creative Writing, and served as the Anselm Hollo Fellow at the Jack Kerouac School. Their poetry primarily focuses on the transactional natures of love and violence under late capitalism.
