Materia Abierta is an independent summer program on theory, art, and technology based in Mexico City. It focuses on the study of the social, political, and philosophical impacts of digital media from both a global and local perspective. Conceived as a space to reflect on the ethics of the present and future, the program aims to address the influence of dominant powers on cultural production and to favor marginal forms of knowledge. Materia Abierta is also a flexible prototype of itself. It is a changing platform for researching and articulating methods for learning beyond the limitations of traditional educational structures.
