Welcome to 4th edition of The Influencers, the talk show you won't see 
on TV!

The Influencers explores controversial forms of art and communication 
guerrilla, presenting independent projects that play with global 
popular culture, infiltrate the mass media, and transform fashions, 
consumption and technological fetishism.

The key to The Influencers is found in its guests and stories: 
impostors, pseudo-totalitarian musicians, conceptual hackers, deviant 
geographers, anarchitects and actors from invisible theatre. In these 
three days they are going to present their work, show known and less 
known material and speak with the public about challenges, goals and 
strategies.

With The Influencers, the border between disciplines is erased (since 
the message really is the message, and the medium is just a tactic), 
links between apparently distant projects are found, and bold 
genealogies are drawn between different countries and generations. 
Ambiguities are also explored and contradictions are discussed. In the 
manipulation of everyday symbols, as well as within what is excessive 
and politically incorrect, we will possibly find inspiration for 
changing the present and imagining the future.

See you all in Barcelona!
