Our we our senses?
17.05.19 - 02.06.19

In a time when an abundance of mainly visual stimuli – often digital screens - determines our everyday life the individual is confronted with overwhelming sensory experiences often leading to diverging reactions ranging from restlessness to apathy. SENSES PRESENT is a temporary multimedia side exhibition of and response to the museums’ main exhibition Prikkels (Sensations) by first year students of the Interdisciplinary Art bachelors’ program of Zuyd Hogeschool Maastricht. In this exhibition the students round up two month of artistic and scientific research considering the brain and our senses. During the project the students visited the Museum Dr. Guislain and attended several art workshops and lectures concerning the topic of stimuli. Several philosophical questions about perception, the zeitgeist and our being in the world were raised. ‘Are we our senses?’ is just one of them.

We'd also like to use this opportunity to invite you to the symposium 'All Sensations', which will take place in the museum preceding the opening of the first years' exhibition.
