Resumen

CARDONA RODAS, Hilderman. Dynamic bio-politics at the urban mesh of Medellin and nearby neighborhoods between 1945 and 1951. Antropol. soc. cult. Urug. [online]. 2015, vol.13, pp.91-104. ISSN 1510-3846.

Approaching concepts such as city, territory and population is putting to work urban imaginary and dwelling aesthetics that make an unclear bio-political framework out of the concept of “space”. This is what happened at Medellin, capital city of the Antioquia department in Colombia, between 1945 and 1951. Around 1946, Spaniard Jose Luis Sert and Austrian Paul L. Wiener were hired by the Medellin City Council to work out a planning project for the future city, based on the models created by the well known French architect Le Corbusier. They planned a city realignment to be known as the City Urban Development Plan in 1951. Starting on 1946, the plan looked for a fluid city linked to the bio-political circulation of the social body, the population. However this bio-political web linked to an imaginary of the city, conceived along a population control, can not completely discipline the symbolic interaction provided by the games of aesthetic and prosaic appropriation by the living city. It’s perceived by the social body playing different tactics that make urbanism a bunch of bettings on human re-signification of the built space.

Palabras clave : bio-politics; social body; urban history; population; control; Medellin.
