2018 marks the 5th year of the International Contest “Stop Censorship! Citizens for Free Countries.” The Contest has a democratic approach — anyone regardless of age, citizenship or education can participate, and all artistic media are welcome. This Contest is designed to foster discussions on freedom of speech, access to public information, and fighting censorship. This year’s theme is “Women. Equality. Politics.” The exhibition in America House is comprised of chosen works (Images) by Ukrainian and foreign authors dedicated to the theme of the Contest: gender equality and access to politics for women. Overall, more than 600 works were submitted to the Contest by authors from 19 countries, including Iran, Ecuador, Poland, Italy, Mexico, Venezuela, China, and others.
Over the past decade, digital technology has radically changed our everyday lives. It has transformed the nature of education, business and healthcare. The world of art was not an exception. Museums around the world are actively creating interactive apps, digitizing collections and making virtual tours. Everyone has the opportunity to explore exhibitions online at any place. The America House Gallery presents the project “Virtual Museum: Explore the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force” that overcomes time and space. This is the oldest and largest aviation museum in the world, located near Dayton, Ohio. However, thanks to the virtual tour, in the America House Gallery in Kyiv you will be able to observe the large-scale legacy of the American Air Force and learn about the history of its national collection.The virtual tour allows visitors to take a virtual, 360-degree, self-guided tour of the entire museum by navigating from gallery to gallery, either by using a drop-down map or by following navigational arrows connected to individual nodes. And icons indicating hotspots where the visitor can get additional information such as videos, audio and links to online resources.
