Resumen

RIVERA MARTINEZ, Ángela. Youth technologies for the juvenilization of the body: a reflection from body practices in models from Mexico City. Ultima décad. [online]. 2019, vol.27, n.51, pp.28-68. ISSN 0718-2236.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22362019000100028.

The objective that I propose in this article is to inquire on the cultural representations involved in the processes I call youth technologies for the juvenilization of bodies, regarding youth as a set of attributes from certain individuals whose processes of body juvenilization are displayed as contemporary manifestations of the materialization of certain images and representations. Such cultural representations are built on the basis of tensions between the normative and the eccentric, between the conventional and non-conventional aspects. By gaining understanding in youths and their diversity, a relocation of youth in unique and homogeneous corporalities is generated. An ethnographic work, both offline and online, and ethnographic interviews to seven models from Mexico City modeling agency “Guerxs” was carried out for this research (2017-2018).

Palabras clave : youth; youth technologies; body practices; fashion.
