BLIND SPOT is a European online art project, to which we like to invite blind as well as sighted people for participation. Blind locals of European cities guide video artists through their well known city. They tell about their personal reference to the city, about incidents and stories, associated with certain spots and things, some people can not see or don´t want to see.
The video artists involved interpret these stories in their own visual and acoustic way language and make the blind people´s city experiences visible for sighted people.
BLIND SPOT opens up specific dimensions of places and accesses to a diversity of facets of city lifes. At the same time, BLIND SPOT is a series of portrais, showing how people without eyesight find their ways and how they deal with their environment and their sensual detraction.
