Fundación cultural en el deporte: el caso de la pelota vasca

By Olatz González Abrisketa

Abstract

The author aims to analyze pelota as a framework for concepts of meaning and worldview. Cultural meanings merge at a juncture, bringing about the possibility of change within an otherwise resilient pattern of communion between players and spectators. The author contends that pelota has had a central role in the formation and reproduction of Basques’ collective consciousness —a ritual exercise, nowadays turned into an industrialized sport, that represents an expressive act of cultural founding while transmitting elementary narratives of the bond of identity.<br><br>El presente artículo pretende analizar la pelota vasca en tanto que marco de concepción de sentidos y de representación del mundo. Los significados culturales se refundan dentro de la coyuntura, posibilitando el cambio dentro de la permanencia y la comunión entre jugadores y público. Este artículo defiende que la pelota ha ocupado un papel central en la conformación y mantenimiento de la conciencia colectiva de los vascos, y postula que la pelota es una práctica ritualmente celebrada y convertida hoy en deporte industrializado, que representa un expresivo acto de fundación cultural y que transmite narrativas elementales del vínculo identitario
