Art is for everyone! However, in order to experience it, first you must have access to it. Once again, Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź joined the "Culture Without Barriers" weekend, this time online.

From June 26 to 28, as part of the "Culture Without Barriers" weekend, we published two films documenting recent museum events: the opening of the exhibition "Teresa Tyszkiewicz: Day After Day" and a night guided tour around "Atlas of Modernity", supplemented both with translation in Polish Sign Language and subtitles. For those "crawling" in the sphere of contemporary art, we recommended the films "Circle" and "Square" from the "Toddlers at Muzeum" series, also available with a PSL translator.
Translations and subtitles were prepared by FADO Social Cooperative.
In 1931, Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź made modern art available to the public - it was the first public museum in Europe open to the experience of avant-garde art, to every guest. We continue to celebrate this openness, providing the core of the 20th and 21st Century Art Collection to those who require special methods of contact with art - people with visual or hearing impairment, with cognitive challenges.
We believe in everyone's right to equal access to culture. Therefore, people with cognitive challenges can read 200 specially prepared descriptions of artworks. The descriptions are prepared in a simplified Polish language, modeled on the principles of Charles Kay Ogden. The vocabulary was limited to 800 basic words; expressions are simple and devoid of metaphors. People, who cannot read, can become familiar with specially prepared pictograms that provide basic information about artworks. For people with hearing impairment, 60 films in Polish Sign Language have been prepared. Descriptions of artworks were signed for them by a PSL translator. They can also read texts in Polish, analogous to a sign message. People with sight impairment can listen to 200 audio descriptions of artworks, recorded by a speaker.
Let's access and be accessible!
