Abstract: This artistic research is conducted between art, sociology and anthropology, seeking new ways and forms of cooperation between these fields. The main subject of the study revolves around the role of sport and more specifically of football as a group sport, in the construction of individual and collective identities, and the positioning of the athlete as a political subject of society. Understanding sports as an important social practice in today's political and economic conditions, a thorough study is conducted based on the aesthetic expressions and the new ritual practices that are applied by sport group identities, as carriers of symbols of dominant culture. In addition, the ways in which this concern is resolved through artistic practices and aesthetic expressions are explored.

Key words: sports, public art, society, art research
