GETXOPHOTO invites visual artists from all over the world to share their vision about the theme proposed for the fourteenth edition: To The Streets!
The street has taken on a fundamental role in the contemporary global society. The public space -both physical and online- lives in constant resistance to its privatization and homogenization by trying to maintain a place where to meet, play, propose, protest and debate ideas that respond to the multiple challenges and concerns we face today.
Communities displaced by key issues such as the consequences of climate emergency, local and global political conflicts, economic crisis’ and identity struggles coincide in the public space. At the same time, the streets are claimed as the essential place to generate new relationships and provoke new cultural and social possibilities.
We want to explore the online and physical public space as an updated place of protest, as an area to be reclaimed by marginalised people, as a place of encounter and mutual recognition, and as a field for experimentation, play and celebration.
We invite artists from all over the world to participate in this open call with proposals using photography, video, installation, performance, actions, digital art or any other way of visual expression.
