For other communities, governmentality mechanisms worked in an exclusionary manner, as housing was only given to those who had the right documents to prove their eligibility or to those who could leverage their relationship with the slum leaders. Citizenship on the other hand as claimed by SKJV stresses the duty of citizens in contributing to the larger society. The spatial exclusion and dispersion of the community, with the strong presence of slum leaders, were unfavorable to insurgent performances.

Slum leaders, who are internal to the community, threatened with informal repression, such that any action from the women was inhibited. Patronage networks require strong exclusive patron-client linkages that demand loyalty and inhibit weak ties that include more numerous and more diverse members of the community.

Hence, the presence of clientelism cancelled out the possibility of the generation of collective identity, the other necessary condition for mobilization. Along with the prevalence of informal repression, this explains the lack of strong collective agency to resist the slum leaders in the SJS locality. Claims to belong to a certain space fueled the commitment of members in the case of SJKV or at least enticed attempts at insurgency in the case of SJS.

Techniques of governmentality strongly influence spatial practices. These techniques identify eligible individuals based on certain criteria and hence reinforce politicized identities, which in turn shape perceptions and potentially disrupt communities co-constituted by space.

Conclusion 63The aim of this article was to explore the production of space, coupled with techniques of governmentality that shape possibilities and limitations for insurgent performances to assert the right to land for housing the urban poor. Within the perspectives of systems of governmentality and production of space, I argued that the dissonance between the planned, lived and perceived shaped the need and commitments for insurgent performances, these being the best bet to claim land for housing in the city.

The BSUP policy markedly influenced the built form and experience of it and the social relations in the slum. This conceptual approach pinpointed the tension between the scale of public policy intervention that targets a spatially constituted community, but implements it through individual eligibility criteria.

A closer reading of this tension within the presented episodes leads me to identify three types of outcomes affecting the community targeted by policy.

These form hypotheses that could be tested through further empirical investigations. Second, when the dissonance is perceived as a matter of eligibility to a policy benefit, then the community might hold lower levels of social skill, but could fall back on some kind of network to engage in politics of proof gathering to meet the eligibility criteria.

Such instances occurred in the SJS locality, where slum leaders were catering to their respective clients in the slums. Lastly, the logical consequence from perceiving the dissonance between planned and lived as a denizen, having very low social skills and no social network, could lead to total exclusion from the community and the geographical space. New migrants into the city would be particularly vulnerable to the third situation. In none of the localities where BSUP housing projects were realized in-situ were adequate arrangements for transit housing made.

It was assumed that community members could put up their tents and tin-sheets, as they were accustomed to living in abysmal conditions. Moreover, this worsening condition did not trigger speedier construction or a change in implementation guidelines.

In this sense, urban citizenship defies governmentality mechanisms that identify beneficiaries on an individual level and calls for more attention to the co-constitutiveness of space and community.

It may thus be said of architectural discourse that it too often imitates or caricatures the discourse of power. This conceived space is thought by those. It consists of 'lots' and is organized in a repressive manner as a function of the important features of the locality. A vast number of representations some would call them 'ideological' representations.

Much more than this. His 'subjective' space is freighted with all-too-objective meanings. The facade to see and to be seen was always a measure of social standing and prestige. It only too easily becomes. Set aside or downplayed from the outset are all questions relating to what is too close or too distant. It is a visual space. This space has nothing innocent about it: A prison with a facade. This discourse no longer has any frame of reference or horizon. As for the eye of the architect. On the other hand.

He has a representation of this space. The u: The chief criterion of the architectural plan. These reductions are accentuated and justified by the rule of linear perspective. Although work. No well-defined terms with clear connotations have been found to designate these groups. Any mobilization of 'private' life would be accompanied by a restoration of the body.

The space of Lefebvre

The fact is that the most basic demands of 'users' suggesting 'underprivileged' and 'inhabitants' suggesting 'marginal' find expression only with great difficulty. Clothes and cars are used and wear out. The user's space is lived. In the West the reign of the facade over space is certainly not over. Inasmuch as the resulting space would be inhabited by subjects.

But what is use value when set alongside exchange and its corollaries? As for 'inhabitants'. We should not forget that among the contradictions here a not unimportant part is played by the contradiction between the ephemeral and the stable or.

It is in this space that the 'private' realm asserts itself. The furniture. Their marginalization by spatial practice thus extends even to language.

When compared with the abstract space of the experts architects. It is possible. Lived space bears the stamp of the conflict between an inevitable. Let us now turn our attention to the space of those who are referred to by means of such clumsy and pejorative labels as 'users' and 'inhabitants'.

Questions of Perception Phenomenology of Architecture. Ana Maria. The social production of space[ edit ] Lefebvre dedicated a great deal of his philosophical writings to understanding the importance of the production of space in what he called the reproduction of social relations of production.

This idea is the central argument in the book The Survival of Capitalism, written as a sort of prelude to La Production de l'espace The Production of Space. These works have deeply influenced current urban theory, mainly within human geography, as seen in the current work of authors such as David Harvey , Dolores Hayden , and Edward Soja , and in the contemporary discussions around the notion of spatial justice.

Lefebvre is widely recognized as a Marxist thinker who was responsible for widening considerably the scope of Marxist theory, embracing everyday life and the contemporary meanings and implications of the ever-expanding reach of the urban in the western world throughout the 20th century.

Lefebvre contends that there are different modes of production of space i. This argument implies the shift of the research perspective from space to processes of its production; the embrace of the multiplicity of spaces that are socially produced and made productive in social practices; and the focus on the contradictory, conflictual, and, ultimately, political character of the processes of production of space.

The social production of space is commanded by a hegemonic class as a tool to reproduce its dominance see Antonio Gramsci. Social space is a social product The city of the ancient world cannot be understood as a simple agglomeration of people and things in space—it had its own spatial practice, making its own space which was suitable for itself—Lefebvre argues that the intellectual climate of the city in the ancient world was very much related to the social production of its spatiality.

Then if every society produces its own space, any "social existence" aspiring to be or declaring itself to be real, but not producing its own space, would be a strange entity, a very peculiar abstraction incapable of escaping the ideological or even cultural spheres.Monumental imperishability bears the stamp of the will to power.

I wit to i larg ace reo the affe. They were merely given tin sheets to construct their own huts on a plot squeezed behind a maintained park and a private, fenced site with no services whatsoever. For Lefebvre, the city cannot be imagined without considering the space which is occupied and possessed by the city. On November 21, , one could read in the Deccan Herald that the housing complex had been inaugurated.

The component elements of such wholes are disposed according to a strict order for the purposes of the use of space: Every bit as much as a poem or a tragedy.

Space should be experienced through all the senses. According to him, space is a simple frame of life. This would mean the diversification of space.
