The Blind World in Empathy Black Box Goes to Pohoda Festival 2018

What is the feeling of not seeing and not being cool on Pohoda? Unique installation of empathy Black Box brings a shocking experience of the daily life of people without eyesight. And for the first time, they will focus on the Pohoda music festival, which will take place from 5th to 7th July at the airport in Trenčín.

In addition to concerts, discussions, and accompanying programme, visitors to the festival will be able to try something unusual. In the black space of the cube called the Black Box they are covered by the full darkness. "Visitors of the Black Box will find themselves in a different world. They will experience one morning in the dark, they try to cook tea or coffee, and spread butter on the bread. The black cube come out with a new look at the world of the blind,” describes the project author, acad. sculptor Elena Kárová. "It's a shocking experience for all, but a valuable way to bring two worlds together and to make people to be more sensitive. That is why the word of "empathy".
