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.
In BILLBOARD FESTIVAL ISTANBUL 2020, Turkish, Moroccan and Nordic contemporary female artists collaborate to present their own personal and artistic female images in public space.
With this project we want to create a more open and innovative city for everyone, and temporarily transform and challenge ideas about urban space through artistic interventions.
