Seminar cycle “Treasures on parchment”
Calouste Sarkis Gulbenkian’s collection of western illuminated manuscripts
This exhibition starts with the question: “what perception of an image would a person gain when they do not see or see very poorly?”. This is a project that seeks to activate an audio reproduction of a work of art in order to facilitate its access by the visually impaired, and in this particular case to facilitate the access to the universe of photography. This proposal for accessing works of art wishes to nurture a greater openness to creativity and rendering it palpable for those unable to see.
A project developed by MEF – Movement for Photographic Expression with the support of PARTIS – Artistic Practices for Social Inclusion.
