Summary: This Master Dissertation is dedicated to studying contemporary events in the visual field that use cyberspace as the primary place of circulation. To do so, the text chooses, as a central object of investigation, recent and succinct graphic parodies of movie posters called minimal movie posters.

From there, it intends to define the minimal movie posters as a creative possibility in the virtual environment, presenting its formal aspects, intentions, language and dialogues with digital space and contemporaneity typical issues.
