In the Ik zie ik zie wat jij niet ziet [I see what you don’t see] project art students draw portraits of people suffering from dementia. The student gets to know these people and the people close to them during this process. Anke Coumans explains why this approach can be articulated as an artistic anthropological research procedure in which the drawing makes a temporal meeting visible. The drawings show the viewer not what dementia is, but what it can be.
