This study traces and reconstructs the lived experience and political practice of exile in Mexico City between 1939 and 1959 by using a dual approach towards social topography as well as praxeological analysis: On the one hand, the social topography of the city must play an important part in reconstructing patterns of residence, sociability, and political association. On the other, the subjective experiences of European political refugees arriving in the Mexican capital, their encounter with the New World, and the lived reality of their social and political practice equally deserves full analytical attention in order to establish the processes of gradual appropriation of the urban environment by the European communities of exile. This study aims at presenting a coherent analysis of social and political practice in exile embedded in its urban topography, relating praxeological aspects of political ideology and nationality to their topographical manifestation, and establishing their historical meaning and significance out of the interplay of spaces and practices.
