Dialogue in the Dark - Discover the Unseen

We offer exhibitions and business workshops in total darkness. In the exhibition, blind guides lead visitors through a completely dark environment where one learns to interact by relying on other senses. Contact us today to learn more!

 

Dialogue in the Dark Promo

In »Dialogue in the Dark« exhibition visitors are led by blind guides in small groups through a specially constructed and totally darkened exhibition - where sounds, wind, temperatures and textures convey the characteristics of daily environments such as a park, a city or a café. In the dark, daily routines become a new experience. A reversal of roles is created: sighted people are torn out of their familiar environments, losing the sense they rely on most - their sight. Blind people guide them, provide them with security and a sense of orientation - transmitting a world without pictures. The blind and partially sighted guides open the visitors' eyes in the dark to show them that their world is not poorer - just different.

 

By entering worlds without sight, we learn new abilities from those whom we perceive to be disabled. As we shift into an ever more globalized community, a visit into a world we thought was limiting actually helps us to break free of our own limitations.
