BILLBOARD ISTANBUL 2020 provides a more prominent, public site for very different stories and images than the advertising that dominates the streets of many cities worldwide. The project gives women the opportunity to express themselves on their own terms, and makes the city more open and creative city – for everyone. The aim is to build bridges between cultures and to challenge our ideas around urban space, gender and identity. The billboards are an important statement, making the work of women artists from Turkey, Morocco and Scandinavia visible.
