WORLD TRANSFORMERS: The Art of the Outsiders
Schirn Kunsthalle, Germany
September 24, 2010 – January 9, 2011
Thinking outside the norm can result in fantastic works. Linked to creative abilities, to mental states that deviate more or less from the “normal,” the everyday, Outsider artists reveal the unexpected in their works and illuminate the frontiers and contradictions of human existence.
Showing artists including: Oskar Voll, Adolf Wölfli, Judith Scott and August Walla, this exhibition spans from the nineteenth century to the present day with artists that illuminate the frontiers and contradictions of human existence and communicate the uneasy relationships between reality and fantasy.
Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, Römerberg, D-60311 Frankfurt, Germany.
