We Will See!
We Will See! Meglátjuk!
During the development of the project, visually impaired groups shared that the main difficulty they have is not about their physical disability, but from the isolation and the lack of real integration in the society. The visual (and thus social) exclusion caused undue burden. In addition, they rarely have the opportunity to engage in creative activities.
The artists tried to acquaint them with their working methods and their visual language. The visually impaired people could experience the community-building power of creative work and exhibition, as a way out of social exclusion. Meanwhile, they introduced the artists into their world with ‘their way of seeing’. It was revealing as an alternative and a valid way of perceiving. Collaboration thus led to a mutual empathic relationship, in which both artists and the visually impaired community could have in-depth understandings of themselves.
The whole creative process will be exhibited and the results disseminated in Ludwig Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art in Budapest between 30 January and 18 March 2018.
We Will See! was a collaboration between Ludwig Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art Budapest and State Institute for the Blind (Vakok Állami Intézete) and Istók Imola, Jáger Márta, Pappné Judit, Tábor István and Tolnayné Csattos Márta as part of the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP).
