Please note: this article is in Greek. Tzoumakas, Tsiolkas, Kokkinos: Representations of the Australian city in contemporary Greek Australian texts: How does the city as a meeting place of the social with the imaginary survive a globalised virtual reality? Which alternatives to the ordinary gaze do the travelers, the foreigners, the immigrants and the marginalized groups of the city offer? The aim of this paper is to examine ways in which the Australian mega city as anthropogeographical surrounding is represented and conceptualized by the young generation of writers and filmmakers of Greek origin in Australia. The paper locates ways of viewing and experiencing, and the cultural, social and other aspects of the city life that are intertwined with geography. Information is drawn from Dimitris Tzoumakas Merry Sydney, Christos Tsiolkas Loaded, and the Greek Australian director Ana Kokkinos’ film Head On.
