Interview with Margarita Tsomou

Margarita Tsomou is a dramaturge, curator, performance artist, professor for contemporary theater practice in Osnabrück, and curates at Berlin‘s Hebbel am Ufer. She has published on forms of resistance and protest in Greece since 2011.

Margarita Tsomou reflects on the question “What should the bank employees do?” posed in the film “The Broken Pitcher” in the context of the financial crisis in Europe in 2011-2013. Margarita talks about bailouts and aid as colonial forms of oppression and dominance. She contrasts the political space with the legal space and says: “We can only do something if we organize ourselves as neighbours.”
