SERIES 1 – DISRUPTION | ISSUE 1
Issue 1 – Identity
An identity is a social construct. It refers not to a given reality but rather to a discourse which is intended to bring order to things rewriting (or writing) history, space, culture.
In this issue we can see the influence of gentrification over urban identities, in the interview to Diego Peris from Todo por la Praxis. Domenico di Siena deals with the concept of sentient identity on social networks. Jorge Taboada makes visible the loss of identity in Mexican suburbs in his photographies. Also, we review “Very Large Structure”, a project from Zuloark, among other contents that intend to portray what identity means in the disruptive context in which we are currently living.
About series 1: Disruption
The term disruption or disruptive is a word used to name that which produces a sudden rupture or break. Usually, the term is used in a symbolic sense, referring to something that generates an important or decisive change. Generally, the concept of disruption is associated with the promotion of change, with innovation. It does not always imply disruption or disorder, but the replacement of the foregoing by new proposals that respond to questions not raised beforehand.
