1. Lutas e Práticas coletivas do Direito à Cidade: Neoliberalismo Urbano ou Vida em Comum?

Date8:00, 14 March
Place: Faculdade de Arquitetura – Auditório 2
Description: As tendências hegemônicas do urbanismo corporativo e neoliberal seguem (re)estruturando as cidades latino-americanas. Nesse contexto, a ação urbana governamental se fecha à deliberação dos cidadãos, seja por uma condução explicitamente autoritária ou pelos simulacros da participação institucional. Diante deste fechamento, as lutas e práticas coletivas de utopias experimentais na direção do direito à cidade podem jogar papel relevante na busca de alternativas para a construção do espaço, (re)abrindo possibilidades de ação pública e coletiva pelo viés do planejamento radical. Com tal perspectiva, a mesa proposta articula um diálogo entre experiências de movimentos e coletivos urbanos e de grupos de pesquisa / extensão desde diferentes cidades e países. Frente aos e apesar dos processos de vulnerabilização e precarização aos quais são submetidos(as) os(as) moradores(as), estes(as) reinventam de modo permanente estratégias de viabilização da vida. Suas práticas cotidianas expressam contra-racionalidades, conflitos, tensionamentos e brechas pelas quais atualizam-se as lógicas da necessidade e da solidariedade que articulam as suas condições de vida, através de mobilizações por demandas e direitos coletivos.
