Marta Peirano specializes in technology and power. She investigates the use of contemporary infrastructures, languages, protocols and artifacts for the control and surveillance of people on a centralized and planetary scale. She also imagines ways to use these same structures to manage and mitigate the climate crisis.


She currently collaborates with El País, La Sexta and Muy Interesante, and maintains a weekly section on technopolitics in 'Las mañanas de RNE'. She has been assistant to the editor at elDiario.es, head of Culture at ADN and member of the Advisory Board of the Biennial of Thought of Barcelona and of the working group for cyberdefense of the Center for National Defense Studies (CESEDEN). She conducts the festival (re)programming - Strategies for Self-Renewal at Aksioma, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Ljubljana.  In 2015 she published 'The Little Red Book of the Network Activist, a cryptography essay-manual for journalists prefaced by Edward Snowden. In 2019 she published 'The Enemy Knows the System', a bestseller about platform capitalism where she connects our addiction to mobile phones with the data mining industry and its role as a tool for mass control and manipulation. She lives between Madrid and Berlin.
