Abstract:This thesis examines the impact of video making practices in the evolution of Mexico’s indigenous struggles. The analysis develops a fruitful dialogue between global history and postphenomenological philosophy. Using the former to trace the paths that cameras and indigenous users have followed in a broad spatiotemporal dimension, the latter reaches its potential to explain how the convergence of these historical paths translate into technologically mediated action. Drawing from the insights offered by the previous analysis, this thesis finally suggests ways in which future philosophical inquiries can be situated within a historical process in which technologies and users come together in sociopolitical contexts with unequally distributed power.
