Dear friends,
we would like to invite you to the exhibition of Herwig Turk
in co-operation with the portuguese scientist Paulo Pereira
within the framework of the project blindspot

Opening 22.02.2008, 8:00 pm

The exhibition is part of the ongoing "blindspot" project. With this  
Herwig Turk continues to translate the research of the project blindspot
into an exhibition scenario. Blindspot is an interdisciplinary research
project about perception, developed by Herwig Turk and Dr. Paulo Pereira
since 2003, in cooperation with Günter Stöger, Beatriz Cantinho and
Patrícia Almeida.
The project aims at investigating perception  in a broad and global  
as well as its circumstances, its determinants, and its  
contingencies. The
proceedings in the laboratories for research in vision sciences are
translated into different settings, thereby creating a meta-language  
crosses the traditional boundaries between science and art.
At the same time, a new heterotopic space for experimentation is created
where objects, gestures, and language acquire new dimensions having been
separated from their supporting contexts. The approach used by the  
of blindspot adopts the formal structure of a research project. The
starting point is the hypothesis that science represents an imperfect
means whereby perception is used as a privileged means to assess reality
(“an improved means to an unimproved end”) (Thoreau, 1854).
