El Vector de Conceptualización Sociotécnica

We live in a time that is not only complex and convulsive, but also confusing. Our present is marked by new forms of surveillance, exploitation, manipulation and discrimination that generate not only inequality and injustice, but also confusion. In this world hypermediated by digital technologies, it is urgent to find orientation, it is urgent to debate and collectively build maps that guide us and that, beyond the probable, help to build new possibles.

El Vector de Conceptualización Sociotécnica (The Vector) is a philosophical intensifier, a space aimed at thinking about key notions and challenges of contemporary digital cultures, societies and policies, from a critical and propositional approach.

Concepts without actions are sterile and actions without concepts are blind. Therefore, the Vector is oriented to analyze, produce and systematize concepts. Also to release them as transformative tools available to other social agents.

These notions are outlined and debated in periodic meetings at the Canódromo – Ateneu de Innovación Digital y Democrática. Each debate culminates in a publication in Atenea Cyborg, El Salto’s blog, which gathers both the previous research and the contributions arising from the meetings. Finally, the publications will feed a glossary of emerging concepts, a sort of tentative cartography of our times.

Today, our societies are becoming increasingly unequal, ecologically and psychically unsustainable, populated by subjects, often paralyzed by homogeneous and opaque technologies that watch over and exploit them. In the face of this, the Vector points to a horizon of radically just, ecological and democratic digital societies, inhabited by critical, flourishing and empowered subjects, capable of creating and using diverse, experimental, responsible and common technologies.

It aims at the flourishing xerophyte.
