Andere Augen invites you to look beyond the horizon. Seeing the world through another's or with different eyes - Andere Augen in German - allows us to see different people, and their different needs, in a clearer light. These needs are the pivotal elements of our projects.
We firmly believe that shared experiences encourage new insights from which everybody benefits. That is why we design books, create exhibitions, build rooms and occasionally castles in the air, where everyone is welcome: people with perfect sight, people with partial sight, and people who see differently. Our main goal is all-inclusive design! We won't just talk about it. We want to reinvigorate and transform social attitudes.
The idea of redefining this notion of ourselves, whether we are sighted, visually impaired or blind, has united an enormous variety of collaborators since Andere Augen was registered as a non-profit association in 2009. Writers, graphic designers, architects, sighted and blind people have put their hearts and souls into Andere Augen projects and they have bridged gaps of understanding and torn down barriers of exclusion.
