Educational award game ORIGINAL
18 April – 18 May 2008
The goal of presenting an artwork always presupposes the question What are we viewing in an artwork?. We put this forethought into the context of an educational award game Original (carried out 13 years by museum pedagogues) and the overall activities of the Typhlological Musuem. For an all-round experience of art, in addition to the usual opinion that the visual experience is primary, we added the art creator and the need for creation.
