Artworks as touchable objects
Guiding perception in a museum tour for blind people
In this chapter we contribute to the description of the interactional accomplishment of object use, by raising the following question “what kind of objects are artworks?”, and consequently, “what kind of interactional practices do they configure?”. By focusing on video-analysis of a guided tour for visually impaired persons (VIPs) allowed to touch artworks, we propose a praxeological analysis of situated procedures of artworks’ formulation and palpation, opening on a reflection on aesthetic touch – both about the way it is reflexively accomplished and the way tactile experience is collectively and sequentially organised in interaction.
