Abstrakt

In this article I approach the Danish digitization strategy as a Lefebvrian conceived space, focusing on how its ideology and spatial codes denote a normative vision for how citizens should and ought to be. Drawing on the non-mediacentric concept of geomediatization and a (feminist) new materialist approach to gentrification as assemblage the article explores the lived spaces of old (64+) disenfranchised citizens living in Sydhavnen, Copenhagen, an area currently undergoing gentrification. By focusing on the interplay between digitization of the public sector and urban gentrification, the article sheds light on an emergent power geometry in which the potential for belonging is carved out differently for different socioeconomic groups. In doing so the article critically explores the more-than-representational geography of the digitization strategy and contributes to the budding field of geomediatization studies
