Art & Mind
Visionary artists from the Renaissance to Surrealism to Art Brut and Outsider Art
A journey into art, madness and the unconscious.
An exploration of visionary artists and the creative impulse, from the Flemish Masters of the Renaissance to the avant-garde movement of Surrealism and the unsung geniuses of Art Brut and Outsider Art.
Art & Mind explores the relationship between art and madness. The theme of madness inspired some of the most incredible painters in history, but mad people often experienced an unstoppable urge to create art too. Art & Mind also investigates how visionary and avant-garde artists sought to explore their unconscious mind as an inspiration for their art.
The theme of madness inspired artists since the Middle-Ages to create truly magnificent paintings: the “Stone of Madness” by Hieronymus Bosch and the Flemish Masters, the apocalyptic visions of Pieter Bruegel, compelling depictions of asylums by Goya and countless portraits of madness including Edvard Munch’s The Scream and Vincent Van Gogh’s Self Portrait with Bandaged Ear.
Featuring art historians, artists, museum curators, psychiatrists, neuroscientists; and art from prestigious museums and collections including Tate Britain, Musée d’Art Moderne de la ville de Paris, and Prinzhorn Collection
