Undergraduate and Master's Degree students present their photographs and an Instagram filter at Getxophoto 2021


Is the social network Instagram a tool that strengthens our self-esteem or does it actually make us weaker? To reflect on this, several Elisava undergraduate students have designed the Instagram filter 'Anti' for the Getxophoto Festival. A collective, random and spontaneous experience to experiment with the deconfiguration and dissociation of the face.

Festival-goers have been able to interact with the application in the installation 'Public Protest Video' and the filter is now available for private use on Getxophoto's Instagram account.

On the other hand, four Elisava Alumni from the Master's Degree in Photography and Design, Carissa Díaz, Gunnlod Jonas, Mónica Gómez and Natalia Davtyan, participated in the MAPS (Best Friends Forever) event, a meeting between emerging visual artists and photography school students organised by the festival.
