ZEMOS98 is an initiative, which works and investigates on contemporary narratives, free culture and social innovation. ZEMOS98 believes in culture as an element for social transformation and not just as entertainment; education as something which can happen anytime and anywhere; mutual support networks and the social economy; experimentation (on a formal level and also on a content level); remix as a tool to deconstruct the dominant messages; mediation as a pedagogical tool; media and digital literacy.
ZEMOS98 has organized for the last 17 years the ZEMOS98 Festival, an international reference on issues related to digital culture and experimental narratives. ZEMOS98 it is part of the Doc Next Network - a network of independent organizations working in the field of the socially engaged culture and new media art across the UK, Turkey, Holland, Poland and Spain.
