Forms of Power Representation in the Urban Space: Structural and Visual Aspects
Political Science
(Bachelor’s programme)
8
2017
The paper contributes to the development of a theoretical approach to the analysis of power representations in the urban space. Authors analyze a number of theoretical concepts from the fields of urban studies, symbolic politics, political geography etc., and propose a comprehensive vision of the subject, which includes the structural / physical and visual /symbolic characteristics of different objects in urban space. The approach justifies the need to analyze the interrelationships between the characteristics of the urban environment as a dynamically developing net of objects. Authors argue that power representations are not in the set of urban space objects itself, but in the essential characteristics of their interplays, which produce new political quality through the process of interpretation. The analysis is made through the foucauldian concept of spatial ‘dispositif’.
