The Post-Critical Web Radio Communication Laboratory is an experimental space with an emphasis on research on forms and supports of/for alternative communication, confronting them with media apparatuses and oligopolies, aiming, in this confrontation, to produce forms of production and diffusion of critical-cultural knowledge that articulates networks of creators at local, regional, national and international levels.
Through searches in radio and television sources, among others, on the internet, as well as through the exhibition of documentaries about the media system, courses, workshops, lectures, among others, both as results of teacher and student research and as scientific devices for a semiology of the media, in order to allow a systematic reflection on the forms of control exercised by the communication oligopolies, their mechanisms of discursive formation, their economic interests, as well as, on the contrary, to prepare and form a view that promotes the emptying of these devices of reactive power and knowledge.
