Answer:

El paisaje urbano que Juan Bautista Martínez del Mazo representó en su obra Vista de Zaragoza en el año 1647 se destaca en la historia del arte español debido a su hábil técnica barroca, su tema poco común y la abundancia de información histórica que permanece sobre la pintura. Nacido en España en el año 1611, Mazo era principalmente un discípulo de Diego Velázquez. Según la tradición de la formación de los artistas durante el Siglo de Oro, Mazo oficializó su relación con Velázquez cuando se casó con su hija en 1633. Al fin, Mazo adoptó el estilo de Velázquez tan profundamente que críticos han tenido dificultades diferenciando entre el trabajo de los dos artistas y decidiendo la paternidad auténtica de varias obras de Mazo. A causa de su forma abierta, su inclusión del naturalismo social y temporalidad y su uso de líneas curvadas, Vista de Zaragoza permanece como un ejemplo magistral del Barroco español.

Question:

What is social reproduction?

Answer:

Social reproduction is the preservation of systems of power. It is the mechanism by which the dominant class maintains their role and preserves their monopoly over capital. The concept has been discussed extensively by the sociologist Pierre Bourdieu, who put forth 'habitus' as a key player in cycles of social reproduction. For Bourdieu (1980), habitus is the system of “common sense” and expectations for “reasonable” (55) behavior that codifies performances of self. Habitus is not entirely deterministic– it allows for agency but limits what Weber (1922) calls life chances. It is a product of history, structured by the dramatization of past selves rather than arising spontaneously to respond to the actor’s objective conditions. It operates according to social group, suggesting that members of groups bonded by access to social, cultural and economic capital have a higher probability of sharing practices and beliefs. Habitus therefore naturalizes class distinction and enables social reproduction.

Question:

How does digital media structure the way you understand yourself?

Answer:

The digital space has long been framed as an elsewhere– a realm accessed through engagement with mediating devices. This model assumes a distinct border between online and offline life and fetischizes the latter. But digital technologies are not contained to the boundaries of a screen or lines of code. Digital infrastructures have become integrated into everyday praxis. They co-produce our gaze– how we behold a piece of toast (is it Instagrammable?), how we understand our relationships (are we mutual followers?), how we judge others (they still use Snapchat?). We curate our performances of self according to this new dynamic. In reducing users to mediagenic profiles, social media sites reproduce standardized sets of personalities. Media like reality television further incrusts archetypal caricatures. In the digital age, our consumption of peer-produced and widely-consumed media mediates our understanding of self. Navigating between roles of consumer and producer, we locate ourselves in a matrix of digitized selves.
