Ingrid Guardiola

(Girona (1980))

A teacher, audiovisual programmer, director and essayist, she has contributed, from all these perspectives, to public debate on televised formats and the role of images and technological devices in today’s world. At present she is coordinator of the “Soy Cámara” project, a laboratory for the new visual formats produced by the CCCB, and is also director of the Barcelona Sample for Quality Television (MINIPUT). She has a PhD in the Humanities from the Pompeu Fabra University (UPF) and has taught in several Catalan universities, where she has also carried out research into questions related with gender, inequality and technology in the framework of audiovisual culture and practice. In this domain, she is one of the promoters of the project “La dimensió poc coneguda: pioneres del cinema” (The Little-Known Dimension: Women Pioneers in Cinema) in which the aim is to research into, and popularise the history of women filmmakers. She made her debut as a director of feature films with the documentary-essay Casa de ningú (Nobody’s Home, Boogaloo Films, 2017), in which she reflects, from the standpoint of two ageing communities, on memory, productivity, work, and their own demise as communities. Recently she has published the essay L’ull i la navalla (The Eye and the Knife, Arcàdia, 2018), in which she analyses how images condition our private life and determine the dynamics of the public sphere and communities.
