GARCIA FERRER, Raúl. Rituals, Representations and Rebelliousnesses. Analysis of the Interrelation between Users and Public Spaces in Barcelona. Alteridades [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.57, pp.111-123. ISSN 2448-850X.

A search is made for interrelations among spaces built as urban and its inhabitants. The method to produce information is participant observation performed throughout three ethnographic journeys across the city of Barcelona’s public space. Applying Lefebvre’s theory of spatial triad and the theatrical metaphor inspired by Goffman it is shown how users of public space perform a practice of space with ritual links and, at the same time, are capable of creative improvisation which can belie the space conceived by the agents that project the city.

Keywords : anthropology of space; ethnographic itinerary; spatial trialectics; theatrical metaphor.
