Abstract

The following article is an empirical experiment in form of a dialogue between two representatives of Social and Cultural Anthropology and Art. Here, Frank André Weigelt speaks as an anthropologist and Miriam Vogt as an artist. For the dialogue Miriam has also created a work of art that has been woven into the text in form of multiple images. The starting point of the dialogue is the assumption that human experiences are based on sensory impressions and “conscious observation”. The focus of the common working concept is the primordial Buddhist concept of “mindfulness”. One result of the dialogue is to provide impetus for both an artistic exploration of the theme as well as for the anthropological practice. In a broader sense, the contribution also provides an input to thinking ahead Tim Ingolds concept of “Education of Attention” toward an “Education of mind” on the basis of “mindfulness”.
