Monika Auch

Stitch Your Brain by visual artist and physician (np) Monika Auch is a solid, research-based plea about the intelligence of our hands. The aim is to use data and arguments to demonstrate the importance of the creative process for health and mental stability. It also has a beneficial effect on long- and short-term learning. That is why she wants to promote handicrafts and combat material illiteracy. Embroidered brains, self-portraits of the makers, together form the Amsterdam Brain Collection. Stitch Your Brain encourages slow manual work to counterbalance our highly automated society.
