SIERRA CABALLERO, Francisco. Collective imaginaries and cyberactivism: a reading from Castoriadis. Andamios [online]. 2021, vol.18, n.46, pp.389-411.  Epub Jan 17, 2022. ISSN 2594-1917.

The digital creation is son the defining base of current breaking-off processes which new urban movements star in. In the present protests cycle that began in 2011 -from arab spring at Yo soy 132- it is remarkable how negative processes, rebel imagination and resistence are demanding a new conceptual framework in order to understand the nature of transformations of new social movements. A critical reading of cyberactivism goes through collective imaginaries and contemporary ways of representation of social individual recognizing the radical historicity and the possible vanishing points. On the following pages, we will execute a materialistic review of cyberactivism from some fundamental contributions to develop a socio-critical interpretation of protests and collective action on the Internet Galaxy.

Keywords : Cyberactivism; Castoriadis; social network; collective imaginary; communication.
