THE BEGINNING. Art in Austria, 1945-1980. #8 Art Brut

Category: Exhibition 7. September 2020

In post-war Austria, Art Brut is especially associated with one place and one name: The former mental hospital Gugging and the psychiatrist Leo Navratil who worked there. He promoted artistic work as part of the therapy, and very soon outsider art -as an art that comes from the unconscious- became interesting, not only for collectors but also as a source of inspiration for other artists. Johann Hauser, Oswald Tschirtner and August Walla are the first stars in the house of the artists. In the opening exhibition of the ALBERTINAmodern, "The Beginning. Art in Austria, 1945 to 1980", the important role of Art Brut in contemporary art is highlighted in a special thematic exhibition hall.
