New EU Screen exhibitionsPublished: 25 September 2012
The EUscreen virtual exhibitions were launched during August with 10 exhibitions exploring a range of topics from European identity to Television History and much more. Some exhibitions include materials from all partner archives, while others have been curated by the archives themselves and offer expert narratives on their own content. The first exhibition series saw contributions from RTV Slovenia on the history of the broadcaster, Sound and Vision in the Netherlands on architecture, KB on Sportswomen and Swedish Television and an exploration of French TV History, provided by Ina.
A new batch of exhibitions have now been launched including material from Ireland provided by RTÉ in their exhibition on civil rights, Deutsche Welle’s exploration of the Euro which covers the period from its introduction right up the current crisis, the exhibition from Televisió de Catalunya on the importance of Catalan language and culture and an examination of broadcasting in Flanders, curated by VRT, which suggests how the broadcaster has interpreted its role as a public service broadcaster.
All of these exhibitions plus a range of others that are curated from material on the site and cover topics such as food, fashion, culture and holidays can be accessed now. Go to the EUscreen portal or directly to the exhibitions page at www.euscreen.eu/exhibitions.html to explore them all.
