Interview between the artist Sarah Iris Mang and the translator and linguist Dr. Susanne Buchner-Sabathy, who is blind. The talk is about the complex process of perception and how we use our senses. Recent studies have shown that the brain makes decisions about visual and auditory stimuli by relying on already stored sensory findings. What is it like if you cannot see an art work? Which perceptual senses are central in order to get an „image“ or to get an impression? In times of digitalization we are experiencing an increase of images and information in social networks as well as in everyday life. This and other topics are discussed.
