Eight years ago, in 2011, a multiplicity of self-managed solidarity organizations, ranging from food provision and health care to education initiatives, emerged from the occupation of Syntagma Square in the heart of Athens, among other places across Greece. Today, after the vanishing of an acutely felt crisis and an extensive anti-austerity struggle, a process of strategic introspection and consolidation within the solidarity initiatives has begun, according to Christos Giovanopoulos. The researcher and activist was part of the talk that framed the screening of Robin Vanbesien’s film Under These Words (Solidarity Athens 2016) at this year’s transmediale. The film and the associated book, Solidarity Poiesis: I Will Come and Steal You, constitute a profound investigation of the transformative experience and political potential of solidarity work. Dipping into various iterations of the festival’s core question—“What moves you?”—, this essay reflects on the making of the film as much as it engages with corresponding thoughts of contemporary authors like Valeria Graziano, Avery F. Gordon and Alberto Toscano.
