Considering that in the field of Urban Knowledge and Language one of the purposes is to understand the relations of meaning between subjects, knowledge and cities, our current aim is to carry out researches that observe these relations based on the discursive functioning of city images. We are interested in understanding how the city means and is meant by its images, which requires analyzing the way that the image produces effects of evidences whereas they affect the subjects in their social bonds, in their forms of existence. In order to do so, we propose to analyze the discourse of the city taking the image as social phenomena. This way, the image becomes na observatory of the city, as well as an observatory of social relations (ofmeaning) in the urban space in order to problematize the visualization regime and the world's visibility, that is, what is made seen in its non-coincidence with what is visible. Thus, it is possible to promote a denaturalization work of this regime. As an attempt to respond to the demand for particular interpretation gestures of the urban space, we intend to come up with a specific place of questions regarding the image in its relation to knowledge production of /aboutthe city.
