SOCIAL MOVEMENTS AND THE EVOLUTION OF THE CITY: THE PRACTICE OF SOCIAL INNOVATION AS EMOTIONAL COGNITION OF URBAN SPACE

The ubiquitous upsurge of urban protests around the world In the last years seems to contradict the equally growing production of literature that deals with the city as a scene of conflict and a device for the production of segregation, reminding us of the collective agencies are inherent to and constitutive of urbanity. In the case of the mareas ciudadanas in Madrid, the spatial practices of protest invoke a particular dimension of the right to the city, defying the permanent state of exception and the increasing dynamics of urban fragmentation, segregation and biopolitics of body control. The dilemmas of conflict, plurality and the heterogeneity of the multitude set the agenda of these extremely liquid and decentralized social movements. These movements return in a paradoxical way to the physical traces of the memory of central places of the city and construct and produce practiced spaces on the basis of a distributed emotional social cognition
