University of Minnesota Press

The Introduction proposes its examinations and theories on the “urban apparatus,” “mediapolitics” scale, infrastructure, and the essay form. In all sense a city is hardware. It is not, in the first instance, a space, a place, a territory, or a zone; nor is it, strictly speaking, a social body. For by identifying a city with hardware, it enables the recognition of it as a site of sociotechnical life and production where power is encoded, memories are stored, and possible features are recorded.

Keywords:   Apparatus, Infrastructure, Urban, Media, Mediapolitics, Politics, Space, Cities
