Disability Art at the Exhibition “Seni Raba Menggambar Suara”


People who are visually impaired from birth cannot see two-dimensional visual objects and do not even have visual memories in their lives. This paper focuses on the recognition of the visually impaired (since birth). This research uses the method of literature study from the Indonesian Visual Art Archive (IVAA) and data reduction with interviews. This exhibition activity has the opportunity to provide an aesthetic experience of blind psychology as a form of education. An important finding in this research is the aesthetic experience of disability in the stage space feeling the darkness of life through dark space and audio sound. The combination of insight into the psychological experience of blindness (since birth) and the development of audio access is a way to understand the aesthetics of "Disability Art". The conclusion is the development of art as a space to recognize disability in society, and the perspective of understanding disability art. This research can be a further study for future researchers by further reviewing audience responses using questionnaires as validity.
