GANTER SOLIS, Rodrigo; VERGARA ANDRADES, Constansa  and  FUICA REBOLLEDO, Inti Fernando. Caleidoscópolis: signs of change in the repertoires of street protest in Concepción - Chile. Universum [online]. 2017, vol.32, n.2, pp.81-105. ISSN 0718-2376.

The work is part of a broader debate framed in a Ring Project of research on youth in contemporary Chile and a Fondecyt Project on performativity and social construction of the body in urban youth. The data presented here includes the years 2011 to 2016, in the city of Concepción-Chile. Its general objective was to study the main changes in street protest repertoires in the context of the Chilean student movement, exploring the relationships between politics, aesthetics, body, urban space and collective emotions, within what we call here urban youth artivism, in so much process of political subjectivation of new type. The research had an ethnographic character and involved the application of a battery of techniques that combine the ethnographic story, the in-depth interviews, the production of photographic images and the collective mapping with activists of the movement in the city of Concepción. The text discusses the main impacts of civil disobedience tactics in this context, its scope in the outcome of the movement and in the actual reconfiguration of the political horizon in late Pinochet-Chile.

Keywords : Political subjectivity; urban space; body; emotions; social conflict.
