Besides being a technology, we consider that the Internet is an historical era in which we have the obligation as citizens to take advantage of its possibilities to impact, through technopolitics and hacktivism, our society to make it truly democratic, to empower ourselves and to desintermediate the access knowledge.
From our beginnings, we have been pioneers and dedicated an important part of our work to the develpement and use of digital tools, comunication strategies and viral campaigns to apply pressure on different fronts in favour of social transformation, promotion the emergence of an active citizenship within the framework of #globalrevolution.
We do all this from the conviction that these clashes for net neutrality or free culture are essential and at the same time also promote these new citizen self-organizing capacities. Without these tools, key events such as those which occurred during indignados movement (15M) of 2011 would have never taken place.
Through non-conventional forms of communication and existing connections between free artistic expression and political action, we as citizens are winning the battle against the big media groups. We citizens are effectively breaking through with our own discourse, opposite to the dominant, yet declining, version. At the Xnet we use artivism as a means to influence conventional comunicative processes, using design, video, photo, online communication…in order to obtain victories from civil society.
Since 2018 we organized in Barcelona the Postgraduate Course on Technology Policy and Rights in the Digital Age.
