Abstract

This article analyses the affectual spaces of a Buenos Aires shopping mall through the non-representational theory. First, it demonstrates that these places offer an opportunity to study the engineering of affect that is central to this emerging literature on materiality, politics and technology. Then, it discusses the mall’s capacity to function as a biopolitical technology as well as an economic one. It concludes that this approach sutures a false binary in the consumption literature between strong theories of producer power and the creativity of consumers
