From the commercial cluster of a broadly defined sex-work industry, Jia-Shan Lo in Dwa-Due-Dia, to the institutionalization of Jia-Shan Lo red-light district, after 10 years of untiring protests against rude abolishment, the historic preservation of the licensed brothel, Wen-Mon lo, epitomize the space politics of the sex industry in Taipei city. Here I was trying to discuss three major parts chronically in order to have a further understanding of the sex-work landscape in Dwa-Due-Dia: 1) the formation, representation, and imagination of the sex industry; 2) identification or disgust of the landscape where the sex industry embedded; 3) the transformation of the subject’s identification. But the stigma of sex and sex industry was the underlying theme in every part. It was driven by conventional discourse, embodied in space, and showed as the form of all kinds of variations. It also penetrated into every field, including how subjects acted, what strategies they took, and the ideology of state intervened institutionalization. conclude as such:. Restricted marginal landscape is representational space of the stigma politics.. The action and politics of the marginal subjects can destruct the stigma.. Besides the conservation of a single historic site, the formation of heterotopias depends on reflexively re-read/re-write in a larger scale as landscapes.
