Exarcheia is a district in central Athens, which has been the epicenter of urban struggles and a symbolic place for the radical narration in Greece since the 1970s. Its central square has faced prolonged problems of drug-related activities, which operate as a major exclusionary factor and create the base upon which current antagonistic relations between key urban actors are developed and power is exercised. This article explores the conflicts over power, how power manifests in public space and how confrontational space is territorially produced, through an ethnographic and survey study and attempts to show how two notions of hegemonic power operate in tension with one another - the symbolic and the everyday practices of the square - through the identities and uses of the space.
Keywords: Public space; exclusion; symbolic constructions
