We are happy to invite you to the opening of the exhibition The Innocent Body on Sunday 21 December. With this project, artist Roland Schimmel shows what happens in our brain when we use our eyes. The brain constantly produces subjective afterimages and halos that we do not consciously perceive. In this exhibition they appear in the field of vision. You experience how these processes work and how personal the perception is. You become acquainted with the subtle sensibility of the body and with the neurophysiological side of seeing.

The Innocent Body can be seen on the second floor in the museum’s new building until 5 April 2015. The project is a unique collaboration between the Van Abbemuseum, artist Roland Schimmel and an interdisciplinary team of students from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU / e) led by associate professor Dr. ir. Ir. Kees van Overveld. The technical realization was realized in collaboration with MAD Emergent Art Center.
