For 2014 the “Art Brut Forum GLOBART” in cooperation with “NÖArt” is planning to present an exhibition titled “Ver:rückt” (“crazy”/”displaced”), which will also fit perfectly with this year’s GLOBART Academy topic: “(IN)visible”. People, who experiment with the limitations and boundaries of life, as well as outcasts of society will be given a voice, and therefore become visible. Especially their art shall be a major subject, the art of outsiders, of people who are not or only partially integrated into our society. However, some of them seem to be more “normal” than the so-called “normal” people. This raises the following question: What is actually “normal”? Is “normal” what the majority considers as “normal”? Some years ago tattoos were considered to be “abnormal” in Austria, and “residents of the Amazonas would probably not find it ‘normal’ that everybody should own a car, a computer and a cell phone,” says Dagmar Chobot, curator of the show. A unique selection of internationally renowned Art Brut artists will be shown, for example Josef Bachler, Georgy Bretschneider, Anton Dobay, Alois Fischbach, Johann Fischer, Franz Gableck, Johann Garber Madge Gill, Rudolf Horacek, Franz Kramlander, Franz Kernbeis, Fritz Koller, Edmund Mach, Max, Michel Nedjar, Johann Korec, Prinz Otto, Arnold Schmidt, Oswald Tschirtner and August Walla.

A catalogue, published by NöART and Dagmar and Manfred Chobot, will accompany the exhibition.

Curator: Dagmar Chobot
