Gugging "Pure Art - True Art - Real Art"

poster for Gugging "Pure Art - True Art - Real Art"

This event has ended.

"The Artist’s House" is located in a suburb of Vienna, Austria.
It’s actually the Maria Gugging National Neurology Center. It all started 50 years ago when the hospital let mentally retarded people at the Center draw as a form of mental therapy. And they managed to create such extraordinary works.
Even now, many artists living at "The Artist’s House" continue to produce powerful, pure works that boggle the viewer's mind. It was about 10 years ago that I encountered their artworks through a catalog. I also had the fantastic opportunity to visit the place in 2004 and again in 2007, and to interact with them. My origin as an artist is in Gugging. I hope more people will be able to enjoy firsthand the experience of this powerful, genuine art.

自由で解放された個々の感性と時間が記録されている。
のんびりとしようと思えば、いくらでも見入ることができる。

グギングの家で暮らす芸術家とそれに関わろうとする人たちの関係性を私は尊敬している。
Oswald Tschirtnerが安住の地へと"遠足"に旅立ったが、
支援・保護され続ける人生と、自分の絵で自立して生きる人生では大きく違っていただろう。
