Description
From November 2013 to February 2014 Ukrainian's, protesting the government of President Victor Yanukovych, barricaded themselves in Kyiv's central square, the Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square). Over these months the space became what some observers have called a "city within a city." It developed a self-sustaining infrastructure (people lived on the square), an identity, and most important to this paper, a spirit, or atmosphere distinct from that beyond the barricades. I argue that this atmosphere was an important component of Maidan. It provided an affective grounding that both attracted people to the square, and helped to generate a form of life unique to the Maidan. Following arguments developed by atmosphere theorists (e.g. Theresa Brennan, Gernöt Bohme, Peter Sloterdijk), I say that atmosphere is neither subjective nor objective, but a container, or greenhouse, that emerges out of the interaction between people and objects. It is at once produced through these interactions, but also feeds back to produce these interactions. The paper uses on empirical materials to demonstrate how participants created the atmosphere of Maidan.
