How do we see art works? How do we see our surroundings? How do we see the world?


This new EVC book opens up a worldwide dialogue between ten experts, from Japan to Brazil, from South Africa to Germany. It provides a fascinating insight into the different cultures of seeing and learning to see. It also offers a deeper understanding of the differences that divide us and the similarities that connect us. This book marks an important step towards transcultural art education.
