Contribution to the "Who knows?" handbook
As the SHAKIN project deals with the question on how and by whom the knowledge produced and transmitted in the cultural sector could and should be more sensitive towards invisibilised knowledge, this talks seems to introduce important experiences and suggestions : the speakers not only share this knowledge, but also deconstruct the domination structures inherent to the process.

In this exhibition, sighted people gain a better understanding of how visually impaired and blind people experience the world and visitors become aware of the limits of their own perception in everyday life, which is strongly focused on visual information.
Still a rare example of art that challenges patriarchy and the violence this dominant system produces in everyday life from a Black FLINTA (and in parts queer) perspective.
