GETXOPHOTO is a festival dedicated to image that takes place in Getxo (Spain) during September for the last 12 years. It brings different proposals from photographers and visual artists 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. The festival proposes an open dialogue with the viewers through images presented in facades, parks, venues, abandoned places, markets and other spaces in the city. This way, the photographic image transcends not only to reach professional public,
but also the general audience.

GETXOPHOTO understands the image as a means to approach, live and face the big issues that affect us. That is why the programming of each edition is articulated around a specific theme, always of general interest. Childhood, elderly, time, struggles, post-globalization or post-conflict are for example some of the themes developed in recent years. This year edition will reflect on Post Homo Sapiens, Programming the Future.

GETXOPHOTO  includes in its program all visual art forms – photography, video, installation, performance, VR, intervention, digital, archives and beyond to show the work of artists coming from different contexts that bet for multidisciplinary narratives.
