The project


AMuSE investigates the field of sensory experience using visual and applied arts and exploring the artistic heritage of the different contexts that define European identity. The project’s aim is to improve sensory knowledge through the artistic process; to deepen research related to sensory data as a source of thought and creativity, to reveal local cultural traditions and promote the integration of the senses in the artistic process. AMuSE created a transnational platform among emerging artists beneficiaries of the project.

The project included visits, workshops, lectures and artists-in residencies in four countries, which gave young artists the opportunity to study and reinterpret local sensory traditions.

The artists-in residences took place in Italy, March 2018 at MÚSES in Savigliano; in The Netherlands, September 2018 at Hanzehogeschool Groningen; in Lithuania, April-May 2019 at Dusetos Cultural Center; in Malta, September 2019 at Palazzo de la Salle, Valletta.
The pieces were hosted in the places of the residency as temporary exhibitions, and gathered in a final exhibition in Valletta.
