Abstract

Spanish Abstract: Este artículo pretende constituirse en uno de muchos posibles puntos de partida en la formación de criterios que permitan abordar y entender el ‘objeto doméstico’, desde una metodología abierta y holística, tanto como el resultado de una cultura material que define al ser humano en un contexto histórico, social y temporal, como el promotor y legitimador de una serie de relaciones de alcance, uso, apropiación y poder. Para lograr dichos propósitos, se hace un rastreo teórico y una reflexión relacionada con el objeto doméstico desde lo antropológico, para encontrar allí algunos vínculos de significación que lo hacen portador de estética.

English Abstract: This paper is aimed at becoming one of many possible starting points for the foundation of criteria to manage and understand the ‘household object’ - from an open and holistic approach - both as the result of a material culture that defines the human being in a historical, social and temporal context, and as the promoter and legitimizer of a series of scope, use, ownership and power relations. To achieve these objectives, a reviewing of theory and a reflection related to household object are carried out from the anthropological perspective in order to track any relevant links that underline its role as aesthetic carrier.
