This chapter explores connections between visibility and situated vulnerability for those targeted on the basis of identities of ‘race’ and faith, sexuality, transgender and disability. The chapter argues that who or what becomes hyper-visible and subject to the harms of hate is produced by more than representational visibility or markers of embodied difference. Using the concept of the social materiality of space, the chapter examines how hyper-visibility is produced through the material and symbolic association of particular sites with marginalized groups. Through examples of the mosque, the gay scene and the home, the chapter considers the ways in which material spaces stand in for, are associated with and produce hyper-visible bodies. The chapter also reflects on efforts to navigate and contest harms of hate, including re-working meanings associated with particular material environments.
