Understanding the City through its Street Posters: The Meanings of Plural Urbanism in Yaounde

Authors: Ndam, Salifou and Abega, Hyacinthe Jean

In Yaounde, street posters carry hierarchical social dynamics and rivalries that characterize the struggle for the expression of rights to the city. As the city is divided into separate display areas, the street posters are then intended to reproduce the social hierarchies. At the same time, some posters fight against these logics through what are known as “counter-power” and “counter-space” strategies, synonymous of plural urbanism.
