The Museum of Science and the Cosmos presents a talk on technology giants

On Saturday 17 at 20:00, the Museum of Science and the Cosmos hosts a new session of "Museum for Adults", which offers unique and intriguing activities for over 16s. This time there will be a show entitled "Los hilos invisibles del nuevo orden mundial" (The Invisible Threads of the New World Order) with journalist Marta Peirano. It will include scientific mini-shows and gastronomic offerings from "Setevalaolla".

At the talk she will discuss how every industrial revolution has its monuments: devices that show and celebrate the power of human engineering and that of the empire supporting it. However, the architecture of the latest industrial revolution is invisible and opaque, precisely designed to hide this power. The new technology giants have filled that vacuum with metaphors, concepts designed to convince us that their business is inoffensive, benevolent and efficient. Nothing could be further from the truth. The internet is not a meteorological phenomenon in which everyone is connected. It is a network of antennas, satellites and millions of kilometres of fibre optic and underwater cables that belong to an ever smaller number of private companies.
