“Dialogue in the Dark” invites visitors to leave the world‘s visual cacophony behind and to experience a completely non-visual world. It opens the visitors’ eyes showing them that the world of the blind, the world of the “other”, is in no way poorer – just different.
The exhibition consists of a series of scenarios in complete darkness, such as a public park, a bustling city street, a food market, a boat or a café. Passing through these dark zones assisted by their visually impaired facilitator, they begin to explore the dark world with their other senses: sound, smell and touch. While visitors perceive everything in a completely new way their visually impaired facilitators provide support throughout the entire tour, as to them this world is “visible”.
