inVISIBLE

inVISIBLE is a tactile book. It is made for blind and for sighted people. The tactile sense is something that is very important to get orientation in everyday life. This book wants to reveal a different approach to pictures in general and women artists, who also appear to be invisible in art history at times. Dr. Rotraud Krall from the Kunsthistorischen Museum Vienna (KHM) supported my work through her experience as an art historian and as an expert in the art education for blind and visually impaired persons. There are eight female artists at the KHM collection in Vienna. For the book the works of Sofonisba Anguissola, Rachel Ruysch, Maria van Oosterwijck, Rosalba Carriera and Marie Louise Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun were chosen, because their work is presented in the gallery. In dialogue with the women artists Sarah Iris Mang made tactile drawings.
