OIKOS - Chloe Tsolakoglou

‘The ancient Greek word  O I K O S, (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 this past summer, 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.
