In the last decade, the expansion of Internet-based technologies has led to the emergence of new languages which, thanks to their interconnectivity and the reach of social networks, have overturned the cultural paradigm. The younger generations have gained access to the world by means of these cultural transformations which, far from constituting a bubble, have been produced in symbiosis with many social and political phenomena around the world, from the widening context of job insecurity through to feminist demands and climate activism. What cultural phenomena interest these new generations and how have they been affected by the pandemic and the lockdown?

The YouTuber and philosopher Ernesto Castro, who has made of such questions a focus of his concerns, will moderate this discussion in which the other participants will be the journalist and writer Anna Pacheco, who will analyse popular culture from the perspective of gender and class; the philosopher and transactivist Elizabeth Duval, who has written about the power of the media on the basis of her experience as a public figure; and the journalist Claudia Rius, who has focused on emerging cultural manifestations within the Catalan cultural ecosystem.

This session will also show the audiovisual capsule "Herencia", from the creation project "A vocabulary for the future", produced by the CCCB especially for the Biennial of Thought and which has a text and voice by Juan Mayorga and direction by Carolina Astudillo .
