VIBE, Voyage Inside at Blind Experience is a project co-financed by the Creative Europe program, concluded in August 2019. The aim of the project was to create a model of temporary art exhibition, replicable and usable with equal interest both by sighted subjects than by visually impaired. From a collaboration between Atlante Servizi Culturali and the American
The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, the scientific support of the Institute of the Blind in Milan, Uici di Siena of the start-up Tooteko and the involvement of three European museum institutions, Santa Maria della Scala di Siena, The Glucksman Gallery Cork, MSU of Zagreb, organized an exhibition that examined the abstract works of Josef and Anni Albers, experimenting an experiential method applicable to the different needs of use. Each visitor was introduced to an exploratory journey of the work that goes beyond the usual visual or educational approach. During the course of the exhibitions, video documents have been created which have the function of divulging and witnessing the effectiveness of the project both for the blind public and for the museum institutions involved.
The 2019 PerSo Festival is an important opportunity to bring to Umbria the results of this experience, born and developed by a company in the area. During the day the A Touching Sight Videos of Alberto Amoretti and Giovanni Hanninen and Inside Vibe by Gian Luca Bianco and Maria Vittoria Lensi will be presented, in the presence of the authors, blind people who collaborated in the filming and by the members of some of the institutions involved in the project.
