Resumen

Este artículo estudia la construcción y reparación de obras de infraestructura doméstica para el almacenamiento del agua en un barrio continental de la ciudad-puerto de Buenaventura, Colombia. De esta forma, indaga acerca de estas prácticas sociomateriales de los pobladores en cuanto formas de articulación entre los sujetos y el Estado en el marco de un desabastecimiento parcial de este recurso público. Argumento que estas construcciones coproducen el aparato estatal y, al mismo tiempo, redefinen sus límites. El fundamento empírico del artículo consiste en un material etnográfico recogido en diferentes estadías de campo entre noviembre de 2018 y febrero de 2020, y representa una contribución a los estudios antropológicos del Estado y la infraestructura.
