'So the flaneur goes for a walk in his room': Interior, arcade, cinema, metropolis
- Publication Type:
- Intimate Metropolis: Urban Subjects in the Modern City, 2009, 1, pp. 72 - 89
- Issue Date:
To develop this reading, this chapter investigates a series of experiences and cultural forms that constitute the intimate metropolis: the domestic interior, the shopping arcade, the cinema, and a series of figures which inhabit and pass through these contexts: the rentier, the collector, the ffaneur and the cinephile. Weaving through their relationships is an explication of the fate of experience in a commodity culture that developed thl·ough the nineteenth century, and has come to be seen critically through its impact in the twentieth century.
