Constitution, mises en situation et jeux de places. Autour de la chanson Saigne d’Abd Al Malik

Abstract : Through the song "Saigne" by Abd Al Malik, this article offers a reading and a pedagogical lighting of the concepts of place and situation in geography. Their analysis is based on and explicit in return the postures used to interpret them, notably those of phenomenology, symbolic interactionism and constitutivism. The objective is to show that any situation in our reality is constructed from a joint symbolic reading of the spatial locations and social positions of the various protagonists participating in this situation. This scenario may be an event for one of the protagonists when he considers that there is a discrepancy between the space occupied in space and the estimated social position of one or more other protagonists of the scene in which he finds himself. The daily life of any actor is therefore constituted by adjustments between, on the one hand, habits to see that allow him to anticipate what he thinks will unfold and, on the other hand, actions that he considers to be unforeseen and to make poetic the world of the other with whom he lives. But, the song of Abd Al Malik shows that these adjustments must be nourished dialogues between the actors to allow to cross the glances, to deconstruct and reconstruct the visions of the world and the scenarios that each will constitute in the future. If this dialogue is deaf, this world becomes absurd because it closes itself in the prejudices which confine each one in his instincts, in his lack of humanity.
