Always finding something: the art of attentiveness
In the two master classes The Art of Remarkability, art historian Wieteke van Zeil discusses how we observe, based on details in works of art. She shows that art makes us more observant: after all, artists often see what still eludes us, they show us new perspectives and have known for centuries how the eye works. A presentation full of brilliant art details about viewing pleasure and new perspectives. Watching art can help us to better observe and form our judgment: art is patient, keeps you curious and widens your view.
Using art details from many times and cultures, Wieteke van Zeil explains how we can notice more, and how we give meaning to what we see; what role, for example, your mood and background play in this, and why it is so difficult to change your opinion. She invites you to associate, reflect and, above all, to enjoy looking more, whether you are a novice art viewer or an experienced enthusiast.
