Abstract

CAMPOS-MEDINA, Luis Alfredo  and  SANDOVAL-PAVEZ, Juan Luis. RESISTANCE TO GARBAGE AND DYNAMICS OF TERRITORIALIZATION THROUGH THE USE OF EXPOSED WRITING. Urbano (Concepc.) [online]. 2020, vol.23, n.42, pp.44-55. ISSN 0717-3997.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22320/07183607.2020.23.42.04.

This text presents an empirical characterization of a resistance dynamic to the presence of garbage in the public space and the contamination currently seen in a peri-central neighborhood of Santiago de Chile. The focus of the analysis is placed on the street writing, understanding that the inhabitants, through these, face this problem, activating new dynamics of territorialization and generating new ways of providing intelligibility to the neighborhood and to the subjects living there. The information was generated through a systemic listing of the neighborhood’s street writing, its photographic record and geo referencing, to make a pragmatic analysis viable, both of its content and its location, based on the anthropological concepts of the exposed urban writing. The article provides a systematic understanding of the relevance of practices, usually trivialized, by which inhabitants display means of resistance to territorial and epistemic dispossession that affect the territories of the current urban capitalism.

Keywords : Urban waste; exposed urban writings; resistance to dispossession; territorialisation.
