PINA CABRERA, Leonardo. ‘That´s how i occupy a place’. Homelessness and the other ways to live the city in Chile and Uruguay. Estud. atacam. [online]. 2019, n.63, pp.105-130. ISSN 0718-1043.

On the basis of several testimonial and photographic materials produced by in-depth interview and photovoice, this article asks about of the homelessness as another way of inhabiting the city by a group of homeless people who use the streets to live in Montevideo and Paysandú, in Uruguay, and Arica and Santiago, in Chile. Part of a larger research, proposes as a possibility a way to inhabit relational, problematizing about the impact that the perspective of the disaffiliation and the viewpoint of domicile have on the invisibility of this dwelling, although material in its manifestation, fundamentally played in its significance.

Keywords : homelessness; dwelling; representation.
