Odwrócona ekonomia symboliczna protestu

Ewa Rewers


The turned away symbolic economy of protest

The emergence of different kinds of urban protests in the 21sth. century profoundly renewed our understanding of power of things and spaces. It is clear that many of the most successful urban protests represent reactions to the well-documented mistakes of the governments.  For the last three decades new ideas of aesthetization, symbolic economy, public culture and global cultural industries have been continually developed by cultural urban studies and urban policies. Situation was even more unstable today, now that we have entered an political mutation of cultural connections between things, signs and space. So the three thesis I propose consider in this article: 1. Protest is the only one of everyday practices in the city life; 2.Everything you  have on one, you can use to say „No”; 3. Agora is there when you are standing. The rationalisation of urban space produces a new ontologies of things, individuals, societies and spaces. The idea of public cultures posthuman performativity requires an active reformulation of  urban protest as an ‘ugly’ crowd.

Słowa kluczowe: symbolic economy, everyday life, public culture, thing-power, strolling agora
