This research project explores new activist strategies for designing, producing and distributing political videos, with special regard to the attention economy of the social web. These strategies include the invention of new video formats, the use of new technologies and the formation of new “production alliances”. The field of video activism may be seen as a particularly insightful case, highlighting both the opportunities and risks of political interaction, discussion and conflict on the social web. The aim of this project is to shed light on these developments and contribute to increased media literacy.

Our project is part of an expanding open network and as such maintains ties with a multitude of partners. We also work with different activist groups and reflect on their video work. Check out their websites on our index for additional information >
