19/04/2015, 10.00 a.m. – 6.00 p.m.
Can you see an exhibition blindfolded? With a special blindfolded guided tour Museion’s art mediators show, that it is not only possible to experience an exhibition without seeing it, but that in fact our imagination and the other senses work even better, when the eyes are closed.
A day at the museum, dedicated to adults. Usually, special mediation efforts in museums are aimed at children and schools and adults are provided with just the classic guided tour. During this year’s first edition of Educational Day, all Italian museums for contemporary art feature a special programme with mediation formats for adults. Free entry.
