Logiques d’appropriation et politiques de l’espace urbain : jeunes skateurs dans la ville de La Plata en Argentine

Abstract : The purpose of this article is to describe and analyse the forms of appropriation of urban space through the informal practice of skateboarding. Our hypothesis is that this pastime, which basically unites youth, is not as futile as it appears but rather signifies a political act that leads to the consideration of these protagonists as citizens. Semi-directional interviews and field observations of these stakeholders in the town of La Plata in Argentina have made it possible to complete a socio-anthropology of skateboarding and to reveal the logics of appropriating space – especially streets – which create tension with other citizens and various public institutions.
