Multiple spatialities: assembled geographies of contentious politics

  • This article aims to show that a perspective that understands urban protests as a conflict between two or more interest-driven actors falls short. For a more comprehensive analysis, the complex fabric of multiple power-laden discourses, processes, networks and spatial conditions in which such conflicts are embedded must be taken into account. To this end, this article adopts an assemblage perspective. Taking the protests around the inner-city marina Port Vell in Barcelona as an example, this perspective is used to elaborate the various spatial conditions that shape this conflict.
