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 GETXOPHOTO will establish a connection, with the Regional Library of Bizkaia (Bilbao) and Kutxa Kultur (Donostia), for the second year running.
Regional Library of Bizkaia (Bilbao)
Located in the heart of Bilbao, the Regional Library of Bizkaia contains close to 300,000 titles, many of them currently freely accessible and spread out over different rooms and consultation areas. In its exhibition hall will host Alone with Empire, a multimedia work by Alejandro Acín and Isaac Blease that investigates the film material of the British Empire and Commonwealth Collection, an archive of more than 2,000 films made by colonial workers and their families from 1920 to 1960.
Kutxa Kultur (Donostia)
This is the cultural headquarter Kutxa’s social programme, the factory where the offer of Kutxa Fundazioa is produced. It is a space that aims to be the meeting place and the platform to support the emerging talent of cultural agents and artists with impact. Located on the 4th floor of the Tabakalera building, at the neuralgic center of San Sebastian, it will host an exhibition within the framework of the 13th edition of GETXOPHOTO.
