Daniel García Andújar (Almoradí, 1966) is a visual , theorist and activist that is difficult to classify, and is considered one of the most pre-eminent representatives of so-called in Spain. With an interest in constructing a cultural discourse through digital media and IT and communication technologies, the artist operates from , making use of the city and the Network as territories from which to conduct his work. Along these lines, social relations and power are found under a system of negotiation that is permanently being redefined, manifesting, through IT systems, inequalities and discussions generated in these relations.

The vast majority of the works included in this are new productions, yet there are also significant pieces that date back to the beginning of the 1990s, where the constants can be noted in a career that not only uses a collective work method and a form of questioning aimed more at users than viewers, but also demonstrates the patent conversion and critical re-use of tools, formats and communicative aesthetics that already exist in advertising and the mass media.

An artist who uses irony and presentation strategies that employ new communication technologies to question the democratic and equalitarian promises of these media and criticise the desire for control lying behind their apparent transparency. Based on the confirmation that new information and communication technologies are transforming our everyday life, Daniel G. Andújar created a fiction (Technologies To The People, 1996) designed to make us increase our awareness of the reality around us and of the deception in promises of free choice that are converted, irremissibly, into new forms of control and inequality. A long-time member of i rational.org (international reference point for art on the web) and founder of Technologies To The People , he is the creator of numerous projects on the Internet such as art-net-dortmund, e-barcelona.org, e-valencia.org, e-seoul.org, e-wac.org, e-sevilla.org, Materiales de artista, etc. He has directed numerous workshops for artists and social collectives in different countries.
