The idea to develop this project born by the collaboration started in the past and ongoing by the project leader Atlante (IT) and the Istituto dei Ciechi di Milano (IT) and the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation (USA).

The challenge at the basis of the project idea is how to apply the tactile models methods of artworks of abstract artists as Josef and Anni Albers. The idea sounded as innovative, because, normally, the most experiences with blind and visually impaired people and art were mainly focused on the figurative and sculptural arts. Furthermore to this basic idea, it was added the availability of the same sensorial experience for seeing people, to offer them a radical different modality of fruition of art, using the same arrangements developed for blind and visually impaired people and a dark corridor where hosting the sensorial experience for seeing people.

The partners decided to apply to the Creative Europe Programme to find a support to transform this concept in a feasible project and develop and experiment the idea at its basis in the framework of a transnational cooperation.

The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation was fully engaged in VIBE project and will make at disposal for the project some Josef and Anni Albers’ artworks for free, even if it doesn’t take part to project as a partner. The artworks put at disposal for the project will be around 50.

On these basis a draft of project has been realized and another partner joined in the consortium, The Glucksman, University College Cork (IRL).

The Istituto dei Ciechi di Milano will provide the tactile models and its expertise to project.

The other partners Atlante, The Glucksman and Muzej suvremene umjetnosti Zagreb will host the exhibitions of Albers artworks, with the tactile models and the other collateral activities.
