The Dark Shift
Employment and work of the disabled is primarily a human right, including the disabled. The visually impaired are faced with extreme difficulties regarding employment. It shows how the blind have been trained for various jobs through history and presents original items that the blind made in training workshops. The museum also holds an old telephone exchange system which the blind used for working, and the public still usually associates these jobs with the blind. Even though prejudices have changed, they still exist to this day. This exhibition is a small effort in the fight against prejudice and the affirmation of the blind in the labor market.
