MIZOGUCHI, Danichi Hausen. Flashes of certain Copacabana. Fractal, Rev. Psicol. [online]. 2009, vol.21, n.2, pp. 253-262. ISSN 1984-0292. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1984-02922009000200005.
The article proposes that, based on a walk around the Copacabana area, issues related to the contemporary urban experience become explicit. Walls and bars mechanisms, which are spread throughout cities everyday, are taken in order to - in the specificities of a certain territory - push, present and narrate conflicts between resistances and segmentations as important parts of the subjective machinery of spaces and times we call ours. Those narratives are performed based on a research methodology that begins at the errancy on urban daily life, searching images of a delicate empiry.
Keywords : Copacabana; walls and bars; city; contemporary; narrative.
