Megafone: a collaboration between the Mobile Media Lab and Barcelona artist, Antoni Abad. Since 2004 Abad has been exploring the ways that communities marginalized within society, and the mainstream media, might become public. The result is the megafone application, a software that Abad has developed. Since 2012 the MML has contributed with the on-going maintenance of the application. We are also participants in a network of institutions and organizations around the world who have participated in megafone events. We look forward to participating in a major retrospective of Megafone, planned for 2014.
