More about us
The exhibition presents a selection of over three hundred works from the collection of French collector Bruno Decharme, which is one of the most comprehensive collections of contemporary art brut in the world. Aside from a presentation of art brut works, the intent of the exhibition is to break down the stereotypical understanding of the artistic expression of artists who are often standing on the fringes of society.

The need for critical thinking proves itself to be the best starting point for media education and the main theme of the curator game (Who is a curator?). In this educational programme students use digital tablets to become curators of their story.
The second part of the Art Brut Live exhibition consists of over one hundred images by Swiss photographer Mario Del Curto. His portraits of art brut artists, along with documentary images of the environment in which the artists live and work, are a unique key to understanding their work.
This exhibition, which takes place in the spirit of journeys to the stars, records an encounter between two absolutely different worlds – that of native culture and contemporary civilization. It is the continuation of a project of more than 15 years by sculptor Lukáš Rittstein and photographer Barbora Šlapetová, who worked with the last Papuan tribe, the Yali Mek.
