Visions of Inclusion

Sightless Seeing (series of performances)

An ongoing series of performances by artist Sarah van Lamsweerde

The Sightless Seeing series is part of a long-term project addressing a multi-sensory approach to experience art and culture. Most performances take place in Museums or other art contexts, engaging with the instability of what art may be: vulnerable yet powerful; provocative to some, invisible to others.

In collaboration actor Leroy de Böck and heritage specialist and performer Alicia Hoost, both sight-impaired.
