Square draws a parallel between the popular squares with vital democratic functions: La Plaine in Marseille and Omonia in Athens while taking into account the importance of places where bodies and voices come together around the world. It explores the idea of public squares not only as physical spaces but also as products of relations of natural and social objects. They have been conceived as spaces of encounter and exchange since the time of the Greek Agora and the Roman Forum. Since 2011, we have witnessed important citizen’s movements located in public squares. Both places have been closed with a “wall’’ at the same time as a result of important sociopolitical and financial transformations. We attempt to show how the closing and beautification of public squares shapes the social fabric and alienates the different layers of society. Square also refers to Pegasus, the winged horse, a Greek mythological creature and its constellation, the Great Square of Pegasus. Celestial bodies are agents of our histories and mirrors of our Otherness.
