Patrimonializing the living practices. When do uses become heritage?

Patrimonialiser l’habiter. Quand les usages deviennent-ils patrimoine ?

Annual meeting of the LIEU network 2018

Rencontre annuelle du réseau « Logiques identités espaces urbanités » (LIEU) 2018

Summary

Since two or three decades heritagization phenomenon concerns more and more different objects and scales. Within this frame, is to inhabit the city becoming an object of heritage itself? This conference will focus on processes that transform the ordinary and daily practices – and the spaces in which they take place – in a unique and representative experience, capable to identify, qualify and/or protect spaces of patrimonial value (labeled, ordinary, common heritage, etc.).

Argument

LIEU Network’s[1]recent research activities concerning the issue of “inhabit the patrimonialization”[2]have shown that urban heritagizationprocesses impact considerably living practices: insecurity, gentrification, identities reconstruction, urban practices transformations, etc.

This nextmeeting wishes to pursue the reflection about the relation between living practices in contemporary cities and patrimonialization processes[3]- already engaged during the 2017 meetings on heritage and insecurity in Paris – by questioning contexts in which the act of inhabiting becomes itself a form of “heritage”.

Since two or three decades heritagizationphenomenon concerns more and more different objects and scales. Within this frame, is to inhabit the city becoming an object of heritage itself? We are interested in processes that transform the ordinary and daily practices - and the spaces in which they take place - in a unique and representative experience, capable to identify, qualify and/or protect spaces of patrimonial value (labeled, ordinary, common heritage, etc.).

We propose three lines of discussion:

  1. Today, heritage is an “evolutionary and dynamic reality”[4]that goes beyond the pure scientist dimension in order to get inside a “collective engagement, at least by transfer”[5]. Shall we consider that ordinary living is becoming heritage? Which is the relation between forms of ordinary living and the production of the spatial frame allowing to protect uses, practices and memories[6]?
  2. Forms of living can be the object of fictions producing narrations and representations, sometimes convoluted, of the urban heritage. Those fictional productions can question the future of a place and build a story on a voluntary heritage of the city[7]. Which is their role in the patrimonialization of living practices?
  3. Which are the social and spatial consequences of the patrimonialization of living practices, especially in popular districts? Which “forms of urban citizenship”[8]can this patrimonialization produce? Which forms of exclusion?

Several objects and case studies could be presented. Here further some examples: collective constructions of urban “common goods”; spontaneous rehabilitations of abandoned built heritages; ephemeral forms of patrimonialization (celebrations, festivals, street-art, etc.); uses and practices considered as important to the legitimation of an ordinary heritage; forms of exclusions or vulnerabilization within urban patrimonialization processes.
