This article examines contestation and bracketing through the relation between public space and the public sphere. By clarifying this relation it aims to bring out how public space can be seen as the site of political practices distinct from those usually associated with the public sphere. It argues argue that both conceptions help articulate political practices that go beyond what is customarily allowed for in the deliberations of the public sphere: on the one hand, practices that visibilize dissent and expose inequalities and, on the other hand, practices that construct alternative arenas where marginal or subordinate people’s self-confidence as political actors can be strengthened
