Reclaim Istanbul: Living in Voluntary and Involuntary Exclusion
Knowledge falls into a trap when it makes representations of space the basis for the study of ‘life,’ for in doing so it reduces lived experience. The object of knowledge is, precisely, the fragmented and uncertain connection between elaborated representations of space on the one hand and representational spaces (along with their underpinnings) on the other; and this ‘object’ implies (and explains) a subject – that subject in whom lived, perceived and conceived (known) come together within a spatial practice.
Henri Lefebvre, The Production of Space. (Cambridge: Blackwell Publishing, 1973), 230.
I believe that the notion of a hidden transcript helps us understand those rare moments of political electricity when, often for the first time in memory, the hidden transcript is spoken directly and publicly in the teeth of power.
James C. Scott, Domination and the Arts of Resistance: Hidden Transcripts. (Yale University, 1990), xiii.
Society is a very mysterious animal with many faces and hidden potentialities, and … it’s extremely shortsighted to believe that the face society happens to be presenting to you at a given moment is its only true face. None of us knows all the potentialities that slumber in the spirit of the population.
Václav Havel, 31 May 31 1990
What is mediated in the relationship between lived, perceived and conceived?
