GETXOPHOTO seeks to establish a closer relationship and collaboration with different agents and cultural institutions of the territory, reinforcing the cultural ecosystem of the country. This year we established a connection, through two exhibitions that are part of our artistic program, with Kutxa Kultur (Donostia) and FNAC Bilbao. Also, BilbaoArte Foundation will host one of the experimental laboratories organized by the Festival.
In addition, GETXOPHOTO welcomes emerging creators. In this case, Celeste García, who premieres at the Festival, El otro lado de la animación, a piece based on arvhive images, which uses the image beyond photography.
