Getxophoto 2019, International Image Festival, Spain

Promoted by the Begihandi collective, GETXOPHOTO is a festival dedicated to images that take place in Getxo (Basque Country) during September for the last 13 years. It brings different proposals from photographers and visual storytellers from all over the world to the city, setting a contemporary conversation about the theme proposed each year.

GETXOPHOTO inhabits the public space and continues supporting the use of formats, stands and unconventional exhibition spaces to show the different images. This is a thematic festival that every three years works together with a different curator who understands the photography as a tool of knowledge, communication, and of course artistic enjoyment. Exhibitions, installations, projections, collaborations, experimental laboratories and many activities complete the program of the Festival.

On its 13th year, Getxophoto 2019 will be curated by Monica Allende with the theme of Post Homo Sapiens, Programming The Future and will run from the 4th to 29th September 2019. The festival involves local and international artists from all over the world, collaborations, conversations, activities, and educational programs.
