A guide to Infrastructure and Corruption by Alejandro Cartagena

“In A Guide to Infrastructure and Corruption, urban infrastructure is a gear of political power. Its aim is to conquer the territory of the city and hold dominion over certain city relationships.
Public space is more than just a polygon delineated by coordinates, it is a factory of social realities. There would be nothing problematic about
this power if it weren’t exclusive. Those who build the city exercise a regulatory power over our mindset and our everyday experience. The
rhythms that regulate our hours, “our place” in society and the type of roads we take on our daily commute are manifestations of this control.” Ximena Peredo
