In the present, there are multiple possible futures. In the context of surveillance capitalism and the increasing algorithmic governance of society, various agents organize and mobilize their resources to get a tomorrow as close to what they want.

The Digital Democracy and Common Data project (DDDC) is part of an agenda of thought and social, political, cultural and economic action that pursues a more fair and democratic society, in which people have greater control over their data and their life in common. However, this way of understanding the relationship between society and technology has to compete with others that prioritize economic benefit over people, such as the promoted by the large Silicon Valley corporations.

Data Control Wars makes evident these struggles for the conquest of the future through an experiment of collaborative speculation, where several possible scenarios will be confronted using technologies and ways of understanding the data to influence the world that we will live tomorrow.
