1- Digital Exhibitions and Museums
A) Digital Exhibitions
A digital exhibition is a virtual space which can be accessed by anyone having an internet connection.
The exhibition takes inspiration from a current focus on the witch/woman as a symbol of power and works of English literature which foreground women’s rights and equality. The viewers are invited to a journey, through a selection of artworks from the British Council Collection, that underpins the role of female artists whose presence and influence within the history Western art has been concealed or swept aside, with the addition of works by contemporary artists from Turkey.
Reflecting on separation and displacement, the exhibition consists of three separate chapters that offer artworks which explore humankind's eternal wish to define our own place in relation to a country or our internal aspirations. By embarking on a circular journey, exhibition visitors explore the idea of a universal identity and the role which visible and invisible borders play in our everyday lives.
