Vedere con le mani
Josef Albers was convinced that the perception of an artwork was the fruit of an individual effort to forge a relationship with it. By retracing its forms, the viewer reconstructs the work, learning, literally, «to open his or her eyes». The tactile itinerary «Vedere con le mani» (Seeing With Your Hands) is inspired by this experiential approach and explores the potential of an exhibition accessible to everyone, in particular visually impaired visitors. Tactile reproductions of certain works introduce a new way of learning about compositional structures and forms, charts and practical exercises on color highlight the relativity of optical perception, and the sensory corridor offers an opportunity for experimentation, in the dark, with materials typical of Albers's research. Audio and visual documentation is also available to help visitors familiarize themselves with this new, sensory-based method of learning about and accessing abstract art.
