Casas e coisas
Carl Larsson, A Varanda, aguarela do álbum A Nossa Casa (1894-1896)
«(…) Consumption uses goods to make firm and visible a particular set of judgments in the fluid processes of classifying persons and events. We have now defined it as ritual activity.»
«(…) Within the available time and space the individual uses consumption to say something about himself, his family, his locality (…). Consumption is an active process in which all the social categories are being continually redefined.»
Mary Douglas, Baron Isherwood, The World of Goods, Towards an Anthropology of Consumption, London, New York, Routledge, 1996 (1.ª ed. 1979), p. 45.
