The recent history of Europe is varied and curious and has been closely observed through the lenses of television cameras. EUscreen makes available a substantive amount of archival television materials for free on its portal and through Europe’s cultural access point, Europeana. More than 40.000 items can currently be explored. The EUscreen exhibitions add another layer to this varied, diverse and fascinating collection. Hand-picked by researchers and seasoned archivists, they offer the back stories on international evolutions and local stories throughout the twentieth century. Today we present a new quartet of exhibitions to entice your imagination.
From Slovenia, we’re drawn into a history of the country’s bond with the awe-inspiring acrobatics of ski jumpers. The Hungarian audiovisual archive shows how rich the culture is that once inspired Brahms to his famous Hungarian Dances and brings you in close contact with songs and dances from the Puszta. Scholars from the Netherlands and the UK offer perspectives on television and religion: what camera angle is the pope’s favourite? And how many women priests exist in the European religious space? Finally, from the Czech Republic comes a harrowing account on the country’s Velvet Revolution.
