Synopsis

The manual of conversation on contemporary art with the deaf

A genuine dictionary in Sign Language to make the particular lexicon of contemporary art accessible to the world of the hearing-impaired, thanks to the combination of eighty terms and eighty famous works of art that exemplify the signs specially created and tested by a team of hearing-impaired persons and experts. Two worlds united by a common interest in images: a manual of total cultural penetration, also useful to museum institutions engaged in the primary task of communicating art.
