The International Image Festival is an event of electronic arts and digital culture organized by the Visual Design Department at the Universidad de Caldas in Colombia since 1997. This year, the Festival will host ISEA2017, one of the most important symposiums on Electronic Art in the world, and for the first time will be held in a Latin American country.

At the same time, the Festival will be part of selected cultural events in the ’Crusade Season France-Colombia’ initiative, led by the French Institute and the Ministry of Culture.

In this paper, we propose characterising Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) as a negotiation between a specific design and its context of use. We then argue that HCI design is a political activity, and that the classification between users and programmers it commonly uses reflects a political stance, deeply rooted in its socio-political context. Finally, we propose that HCI can take inspiration from new media art’s subversive appropriation of technological knowledge.
