“See That Door With a No Entry Sign? Open It”: Exploring Consumer Agency in Contested Place

This research explores consumer agency in the context of ‘urban exploration,’ which refers to the consumption of abandoned and contested urban ruins. Drawing on netnographic data, we introduce the concepts of calculated agency and transient appropriation, and demonstrate the importance of temporality and virtuality in the creation of place meaning.
