This paper analyses the political life of the Abasto building in two steps. First, by drawing on theories of socio-spatial dialectics, it charts its history as an urban object in a wider political landscape of porteño modernity. Second, by incorporating recent theories of affect and presenting findings from field work carried out at the mall in 2010 and 2011, this paper develops a framework for understanding the politics of consumption in a “post-neoliberal” urban landscape
