In 2015 Hanne Lise Thomsen realized BILLBOARD FESTIVAL CASABLANCA. 2012 We Are From Here in Ramallah on the West Bank, and in 2003 the city-wide billboard project Women2003 in Copenhagen and Malmo, with 100 female artists from throughout the region.

This is the kind of billboard projects we’d now like to bring to Instanbul, in a new project aimed at creating a free space for reflection and debate on issues of gender and identity, and building bridges between cultures through art.

BILLBOARD Istanbul 2020 is supported by: The Danish Arts Foundation’s Project Committee, the Nordic Culture Fund and DID, Grosserer L. F. Foghts Fond, Royal Dansh Embassy in Ankara, Ernst B. Sund Fonden. Collaborators: Danish Cultural Institute, Kentvizyon.

Special thanks to: Visuel artist Arzu Yayıntaş.
