The Let Me Hear Your Footprints exhibition is focused on the richness of human perception and world exploration, especially with regard to human experience with various types of physical, sensory, or mental disadvantages. The exhibited works thematise such experience and come from the praxis of artists who are either disadvantaged themselves or cooperate closely with the disadvantaged. There is a representation of neurodivergent, blind, purblind, and physically impaired authors. The exhibition aims to not only give the others an insight into their living conditions and experiences but also emancipate them face to face with the ableist ideology which prevails in our society. On that account, we avoid using the contrasting societal categorisations which stem from the terms “normal” (meaning “healthy” or “able”) and “different”. This is why we replace the established term “disabled” with “disadvantaged” in reference to the societal root of ableism. As the poetic title exhibition name implies, the exhibition expresses a wish to at least partially enter the specific experience of other people. It accomplishes it using distinctive artworks which can activate various senses and thus mediate a unique experience through their mutual effects.
