Occupations and Prisons: Writing, Thought and Affected Spaces

Apropos Patricia Heras, Marina Garcés and Mireia Sallarès

Margalida Pons    Universitat de les Illes Balears, Palma, Espanya    



Taking as starting point texts by poet and activist Patricia Heras, philosopher Marina Garcés, and artist Mireia Sallarès, this article will focus on the affective value of spaces in the public sphere. Heras, Garcés and Sallarès converge in an emotional appropriation of shared spaces that generates new forms of commitment to the community. Their works also constitute synergic affective atmospheres that confer value on anonymous or stigmatised subjects. Space and emotion are thus united in emotopes that, starting from individual experiences, transcend them to become incipient symbols of the transformation of a city, the resistance to the state authority or the survival of a country wounded by wars.
