During these moments of exchange, we look at the idea that art today designates a particular sensory experience, different from the ordinary sensory experience.

For this philosophical afternoon tea based around the sense of touch, we will look at the following idea: The experience of a plastic artwork is not reduced to its strictly visual elements, but also involves the other senses. More especially, doesn't the visual appreciation of textures, volumes, matters or thermic qualities also involve a sort of "virtual touch and feel"? What is feeling? What are the desires, the restrictions or issues linked to it? 

With Maud HAGELSTEIN, art philosopher and researcher at FNRS/ULiège.
