PEREZ, Soledad A.. Identidades urbanas y relocalización de la pobreza. Intersecciones antropol. [online]. 2004, n.5, pp.177-186. ISSN 1850-373X.

This article reflects on the way in which urban identities are configured in the fight for the appropriation of territory. The case study was developed in the city of San Carlos de Bariloche, in the northwest of Patagonia, in a neighborhood located behind Otto hill 6 km from the centre of the city, which was constructed following the relocation of four hundred families from seven different settlements close to the urban center. The premise of this work is that all representations imply interventions, so we tried to reconstruct the process that generated this policy of concealment of poverty, trying to catch the presumptions and representations that were used in the definition and development of the project. The presupposition that guided the relocation project was that the territorial aspect could determine the social aspect, in such a way that if you add individuals (seen as undifferentiated) together you get a neighborhood. In practice, the relocation of people from different places meant the fragmentation of identities as a result of the alteration of their everyday lives and the disolution of their routines. In the same way, this project generated conflicts, stigmatized the subjects and the space, producing isolation in both the city center and within the dwellings, as neighbors avoid interacting with "the others" with whom they are obliged to share their space.

Palabras clave : Urban poverty; Identities; Relocation; Space; Segregation.
