SILVEIRA, Luísa Horn de Castro; ROCHA, Cristianne Maria Famer  e  VARGAS, Julio Celso Borello. Invisible barriers and alternative routes: an analysis about urban (in)mobility and production of subjectivities. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2020, vol.10, n.3, pp. 31-51. ISSN 2238-152X.

Promote healthy urban mobility in big cities is a challenge, especially in regions with social-economic inequities. Places where infrastructural factors add to subjective issues (invisible barriers) that inhibit or hinder people's journeys around the territory. The aim of the study was to investigate how urban mobility is affected by invisible barriers in a region of Porto Alegre city in the South of Brazil. A qualitative method of intervention research was used and the analysis was produced using concepts of Michel Foucault. Findings permit to relate invisible mobility barriers with the existing modes of subjectivation in particular urban contexts. Those are connected to power relations engendered in contemporary urban life, to the feeling of exclusion and isolation, to the fear atmosphere and insecurity and to segregation processes (re)produced locally.
