The two latest episodes of Expo 2020 Dubai’s podcast, Inside Expo, continue in the exploration of the meaning behind the Expo and what visitors can discover there.
‘The Book of Optics’ investigates the links between the Expo’s public art programme and the groundbreaking book of the same name by Ibn Al Haytham. Featuring Expo 2020 Dubai’s Senior Vice President for Arts & Culture, it notably focuses on the importance of perceptions – varied and shared – and the role this plays in forming connections.
With the Women’s Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai having announced a packed events calendar, the second episode this week, ‘The Brave Women’ is dedicated to the history of women’s participation in World Expos, starting with the story behind the first ever pavilion dedicated to women at Expo 1876 Philadelphia.
Inside Expo is a bi-weekly podcast series by Expo 2020 Dubai and produced by Kerning Cultures Network.
