Painting the walls: visual interventions in public space of the outskirts of Buenos Aires

The present work is the result of the first stage of research on the field of visual culture of intervention in the public space, in the Buenos Aires conurbano. The descriptive exploratory study is framed in the case of the municipality of La Matanza, where a plurality of visual manifestations are observed through which various agents try to be represented in the space: the street is the place of a territorial / spatial conflict and the walls the place in which a dispute manifests itself in the plane of images, through manipulation, accumulation and superposition of visual cues. We propose the notion of visual capital to focus on the strategies and tactics of visibility carried out by the different social actors in the dispute over the power of the street as a place, and thus be able to carry out an initial classification of these practices.
