CASTRO ORELLANA, RODRIGO. The Stinking City: Neoliberalism and Post-panoptic. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2009, vol.29, n.1, pp.165-183. ISSN 0718-090X.

The article studies panopticism as an architectural expression of modem power, from the perspective of its functioning and possible presence in the current logic of globalized capitalism. In this context, it identifies a new technology of post-panoptical power, which is closely linked to the neoliberal-biopolitical rationality of our contemporary societies. This new framework involves an organization of the space which reaches náther the reticulated pattern nor the normalized vigilance of the panopticum and which could be called "synoptic". Neoliberal biopolitics thus would endow fluidity to territories; it would even render them into a uniform surface of consumption and would saturate those places where heterogeneity is displayed. This article concludes by establishing the immunitary nature of the production of space and of subjectivity articulated by the technology of neoliberal governamentality and manifested specifically in the segregation of the urban territory.

Palabras clave : Panoptic; synoptic; biopolitics; neoliberalism; subjectivity.
