Restlessness and Architecture

17 May 2018 – 26 August 2018

Architecture has a tremendous influence on our lives and experiences – this holds true especially for people who spent the better part of their lives behind the walls of psychiatric institutions. The historical Prinzhorn collection, which contains works of psychiatric patients from around 1900, contains not only depictions of institutions and patient‘s cells and rooms but also a great variety of various architectural motifs, ranging from small abstract sketches to large and extravagant drawings. Our Exhibition “Restlessness and Architecture” presents a selection of 150 works on paper and paintings, many of which have not yet been on show to the general public.
