ZAMORA, Maria Helena. The bodies of naked life: survivors or resistents?. Lat. Am. j. fundam. psychopathol. on line [online]. 2008, vol.5, n.1, pp. 104-117. ISSN 1677-0358.
The aim of this essay is to explore Michel Foucault´s concept of biopower and its many forms of fixation that colonizes the several fields of Life. We use recent essays by Agambem, Fuganti, Pelbart, Costa and others; and their reflections on the capitalistic ways of producing domination and violence. We emphasize Agambem´s concept of naked life - natural, non-politic life. We also consider which forms of resistence can be produced today. We use images as a way to give new meanings to what is perceived in everyday life: advertizing, newspaper headlines, comics and famous photography.
