Paul Goesch - An Artist Between Avant-Garde and Institution

In addition to being a recognized professional expressionist artist with psychiatric experience, Paul Goesch also occupies an outstanding position in the Prinzhorn Collection. Furthermore, his life and his art are a particularly impressive example of the contact and relationship between art and mental illness in modernity - a field of research that has not only been the focus of research at the Prinzhorn Collection since the opening of the museum, but that has also become an important field of interest in German, French and Italian media and art history, since the turn of the century. The conference with speakers from Germany and France examines both Paul Goesch's connections to the avant-garde and cultural events of his time, as well as his stay in psychiatric institutions.

Place: Sammlung Prinzhorn, Vossstrasse 2, Heidelberg, Germany

Dates: Conference 13 – 14 January 2017

CURATING OUTSIDER ART
International Conference & Annual General Assembly

May 15-16, 2014 - Halle Saint Pierre, Paris

The board of EOA is pleased to announce this year's conference and general assembly at Halle Saint Pierre.

About the conference:

More and more institutions for contemporary art integrate art works by outsider artists in exhibitions or permanent collections today. As a lot of these artists are not thinking in terms of the art scene or art market they are unfamiliar with ways of presentation and exhibiting their works. Professional art curators, on the other hand, are often unfamiliar with the context of and special ideas behind outsider art and tend to press it into well-known presentation formats, cutting off important dimensions of the works. The conference "Curating Outsider Art" wants to look for ways to mediate between artists and curators in this field. Speakers include: Martine Lusardy, Pierre Muylle, Thomas Röske, Barbara Safarova.

 

See full programme (updated April 22, 2014) and information on registration >>>

Go to online registration >>>

 

The conference is produced by The Prinzhorn Collection & European Outsider Art Association. Director of the conference: Thomas Röske, the Prinzhorn Collection.
