A selection of Works of the Prinzhorn Collection

The Miracle in the Shoe Insole

April, 30 – August, 16 2015

With a selection of about 120 art works, the exhibition "The Miracle in the Shoe Insole" offers an impressive tour d’horizon of the Prinzhorn Collection. The paintings, drawings, water-colours, collages, sculptures and textile works convey to what extent the artists were fuelled by their imaginations in trying to regain control of an inner world that had fallen to pieces. The outer world is interpreted, messages are received and re-routed, old regulations are destroyed and new ones created, uncanny situations dispelled, visions explained. Within this imagined world, sweat stains in a shoe insole and the military campaigns of Napoleon are equally important.
