The Amigos Building of the University of Navarra hosts from September 18 to 29 the IDEA Foundation's exhibition 'Miradas', an art therapy solidarity project that invites to change the way we look at the vulnerability of the elderly

The sample is exhibited at the campus on the occasion of the inauguration of the Chair IDEA New Longevities of the Institute for Culture and Society (ICS), which has started its course 2023-2024.

The exhibition is an initiative of group IDEA, which manages seven residences in Navarra, Galicia, Salamanca and Catalonia. It contains 130 photographs starring the residents of IDEA Foz (Lugo) that have as goal to make visible the status lived in senior centers during the pandemic of Covid-19 and humanize the attention and care of residents, reinventing the use of masks.

100 local artisans took part in status and proposed original mask designs, with the aim of turning this uncomfortable object, which dehumanizes care, into a creative element. Designs were received from Spain, Greece, Italy, Portugal, United Kingdom, Chile and Argentina. 

The photographs are the work of Xaora Fotógrafos, who selflessly portrayed people living in the residences with only their masks, no costumes, no makeup and no scenery.
