Lived Space: Working Class Housing in Talca

Espacio Vivido

The lived space recognizes the enormous and unapproachable complexity of the spatial experience, trying to approximate the way we live spaces, which certainly has to do with its material and subjective aspects, but it does not end with it, indeed, the city as a lived space it is in permanent construction, it can be criticized and modified, therefore it is an open and also political area. Spaces as lived spaces are at the same time material and imagined, they are concrete practices – walking, taking the bus, sitting on a bench in a square – but also imaginative – avoiding a dangerous corner, the memory that re-lives when sitting in determined bank of the square- that are recombined and mixed generating new spaces to discover. It is in this sense that we understand the working populations of Talca as lived patrimony, hence the theoretical / methodological challenge of addressing it. This is how this book brings together the results from the research carried out during 2018 and 2019 that sought to reconstruct the way of living the space of the Nacional, Ferroviaria, Belgrano, Libertad and Juan Antonio Ríos working populations from documentary sources and especially the stories of its inhabitants.
