How does one ‘become’ a passenger? How is it experienced? How does ‘design’ prevent or facilitate that process and ‘mobile situations’? Taking point of departure of the mentioned main research questions, this colloquium will open the floor to discuss preliminary empirical data analyses of the PhD project ‘Becoming a passenger’- exploring the passenger experience and airport design – which took place in CPH airport, Denmark, as the case study (part of AirCiF – Airport City Futures project). Focusing on data triangulation from different methods – tracking technologies (eye tracking, thermal cameras) and traditional methods (ethnographic studies, interviews, surveys) – the idea is to discuss the preliminary findings and ways of understanding the relation between different types of data in order to draw, and open up, theoretical and conceptual discussions toward the creation of ‘mobilities design’ ‘guidelines’ for transit (airport) spaces.

In 2016, the main Brazilian News portal – Globo.com – published the findings from research conducted by the City Council of São Paulo. The data pointed out that 72.4% of residents in the biggest city in Brazil have never gone to an art exhibition or to a theatre show. Two years later, the Communication Science News Agency of the University of Buenos Aires revealed that Argentinian Government had closed the activities of the dance company Ballet Nacional de Danzas, which had been responsible for performing in several cities where residents had never seen a dance presentation.
Both cases may be linked not only by their Latin American roots but also by an elitist character of the culture that reveals some questions. Why are cultural spaces and performances still elitist? Why are some exhibitions, theatre shows and museums not attracting most of the citizens- even though they are free? The answers to such questions require a historic incursion into the cultural determination process, mainly on the ways that public and private organisations direct resources and policies to culture.
With this context in mind, I propose to discuss the development of a cultural favoured circle based on Cataguases, a Brazilian city, which begins with the introduction of modernist architecture, later elevating to the founding conditions of an avant-garde town, and continuing through to cultural policies established by foundations funded by capital. It is assumed that cultural domination is an extension of the power of capital over labour, reducing the possibility of transformation stemming from artistic elaborations.
