Authenticité et hyperréalité : expérience touristique et fragmentation de l'espace dans le territoire de Macao

Abstract : Focused on a case study in Macao, this paper aims to interpret the complex relations between the processes of construction/negotiation of cultural identities, the processes of touristification and those of the transformation of the territory. In the wake of the reintegration of Macao in the Popular Republic of China’s political sphere, several mechanisms of objectification and commoditization of cultural elements constitutive of Macaoians’ identity –the Eurasian community of Macao– were set in place to give birth, simultaneously, to a new cultural identity of the territory and to a branding positioned within the global touristic market. The cultural dynamics associated with tourism combine representations that pertain to the concepts of authenticity and hyperreality. The urban territories that became touristic sites are themselves often shaped by these two concepts. This is what I will try to demonstrate in the case of Macao.
