After platform capitalism and the discourse of voluntary servitude
*The video has English and Spanish subtitles
(This session is held in Spanish)
The crisis of the covid has increased platform capitalism, that which feeds on global digital platforms that function as data extraction infrastructures. This shift not only affects the infrastructure in the sense of sophisticated forms of social control, but also the processes of subjectivation, making us turn towards the cognitive automaton. Starting from a careful description of this context, from a reasoned elaboration of the diagnosis, we also have to imagine and deploy practices and technologies that ensure the common good.
