Museo Animado (Animated Museum) is a collection of animations based on self-portraits of Argentine painters of the 20th century. Just like during the 15th century in Venice, the mirror industry contributed to the creation of the pictorial self-portraits of the renaissance artists, the development of affordable lenses and mobiles gave birth to their current version. Both worlds are fused in Museo Animado, which uses the Instagram features to publicize the collections of national museums through the faces of the artists, now animated and turned into video-selfies.
