Heterotopias en la época global

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Heterotopias in the global epoch

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The transformation of the urban horizon shows a heterotopical fragmentation which is a transverse phenomenon. Old suburbs and new critical areas can be mentioned as ‘sensitive areas’, far beyond their geographical position on the city map. In these contexts the consequences of globalisation and contemporary development processes are more visible and virulent, showing some convergence into a similar model featured by the same critical relations between inside/outside, institutional withdrawal, fragmentation and place banalisation, imagined dislocation of consumption and media, anthropological suffering and collapse of sociability.
