Giorgio Jackson is a magnetic, electric person. Everybody agrees on that.

When we finished the interview, his energy kept on hovering over the unusual set that we set up at the IMPA Cultural Center in Buenos Aires.

He talks about oxymorons and feedback, revolutions and democracies, axes old and new. He talks about a fascinating determination to "take power and to let go of it".

Today, here in the South, the weather is terribly hot: listening to Giorgio can possibly bring us some fresh air.

Below, the full interview:


Politics Recovered is a series of interviews to 11 leading members of the Network of Political Innovation in Latin America. Taking advantage of the fact that they were meeting in Buenos Aires, Agustín Frizzera asked them what their vision of the new ways of doing politics is, and how do they approach the building of citizens’ rights and the inclusive use of technology.
