This article is a research record on the ongoing transformation of the public sphere in Indonesia. Where the characteristics and behaviors of users of the public sphere experience dialectics, the cause is the hegemony of a capitalist group's domination over another (dominated) group by means of incorporating dictated idealism, then accepted as something natural. For example, the 'indoctrination of architectural design' which causes the commodification of public space, raises a new awareness for users of public space and unconsciously they raise their status to the middle class, follow popular culture, and imitate the behavior or lifestyle of the bourgeois class. These are all illusions that capitalists deliberately create so that the characteristics of the dominated people lose their ideology and identity as free individuals. Public space becomes a new means of accommodating all those desires, so it is difficult to avoid how then public space transforms, and no longer becomes a social space that is free to be accessed by the public at no cost.

Keywords : Transformation, Capitalist Hegemony; Commudification of public spaces; Social space.
