Passages (Pasáže) in Prague as Heterotopias of Inclusion and Exclusion
Ebook format Pdf readable on these devices:
Building on cultural geography and Foucault’s concept of heterotopias, and combining visual ethnography with photo collage, this visual essay explores how the passages (pasáže) of central Prague function as heterotopias of inclusion and exclusion. These ambiguous and hybrid spaces are simultaneously open and closed, both disciplining mobility and fostering plurality and heterogeneity. The analysis points to the multiplicity and contingency of space in the urban environment, which does not fully integrate its subjects, but leaves room for them to create their own meanings and pleasures of the spaces they inhabit.
