May, Thursday 9th: A New Way of Looking

Our very own Simone Raskin will talk about her new activity: The Art of Looking, tell us what this means and how this subject came up in her life.

Submerged in images, videos, films, infos, on small screens and large ones, we have lost our ability to really look and see. Using mindfulness and slow looking techniques, she facilitates workshops where she teaches people to slow down, look and see. Her point of departure is art, but this method is valid for everyday life too. «In this way, the familiar becomes unfamiliar, and the old, the new.» - Alexandra Horowitz. 

She will introduce us to these notions and give us a 'teaser' of her workshop.
