CiTiZEN KiNO #82


 Asymmetrical Meda + 20th anniv. of INDYMEDIA - C-Kino is a live public media + situational cinema series.

In this episode we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the INDYMEDIA platform, one of the first "open publishing" websites in 1999. This became a new model for online community + grassroots media, and developed as a communications tool for a “network of resistance" against both corporate and state controls. One of the inspirations for these alternative channels came, not from Silicon Valley nor techies, but from the struggles for indigenous autonomy and the Zapatista movement/strategies, which had to reckon with the complexities of asymmetrical power in a mass mediated world.

Today the net, from our XLterrestrials' perspective, has mostly become a treacherous terrain of predatory surveillance capitalism ( Zuboff ), data-mining, spying, disinformation, distraction, disembodied confusion and screen-gawking zombiedom, gamification and a deluge of spectacular virtual abstractions.

We take as our starting point April Glaser's astute article for Logic magazine ( issue 8, August ) to critically assess "Is Another Network Possible" now ?
