Greetings from Barcelona is an artistic intervention by the students and staff of the Master of Photography and Design at ELISAVA, with the postcard as the main theme, medium and end. The postcard has been fundamental in the evolution and popularization of both photography and tourism since its invention in the mid-nineteenth century. It has been for both fields a fundamental driving-force, without which their development might have taken a different route entirely. Nevertheless, the postcard as an image-simulacrum of a picturesque world is nothing more than a fiction created for the tourist. It represents an ideal world; amiable, safe and appealing to all audiences. Greetings from consists of a postcard intervention at various #rutadocfield venues as part of the festival DOCfield2017, an Instagram intervention, as well as this exhibition.
