Extraordinary! Unknown works from Swiss Psychiatric Institutions around 1900

October 11, 2018 to January 20, 2019

Artistic works of psychiatric patients are increasingly attracting public interest but so far little research has been done. From 2006 to 2014 in Switzerland, a unique project at the Zurich University of the Arts, supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation, inventoried the collections an drawings in medical records around 1900 of all the cantonal mental hospitals. This traveling exhibition shows a selection of these newly discovered works and gives an insight into unusual works of art.
