Alone & accompanied
The works of this exhibition would undoubtedly never have seen the light of day, at least not in that form, without the setting in which they were created: an institutional collective studio or private mentoring. Each of them is the outcome of encounters, between a person with a mental or autonomy defect, and a studio supervisor, artist or accomplice – sometimes many of them together.
To what extent can artistic, psychological and educational mentoring be a catalyst for such substantially individual forms of expression?
The exhibition “alone and accompanied” combines aesthetic pleasure with reflection, intelligence and… vigilance.
With works from :
Sylvain Cosijns, Philippe da Fonseca, Véronique Declercq, Richard Moszkowicz, Pascal Tassini

Knock Outsider Komiks
This exhibition is intended as a joyous uppercut to the established categroies. It brings together fiction, abstractions, graphical poems, creations without words, free associations of images, unlikely meetings between text and drawing... The classifications are explosing and the defintions eroding to proclaim that the comic strip is a vast playground without limits other than the inventiveness of its creators...
With works from :

Institutionalised since the age of 26, Gustav Mesmer (1903-1994) sketched drawings and plans from the psychiatric hospital. He devised models and developed life-sized flying machines that he tested personally. His indefatigable efforts to fly in Lauter Valley earned him the nickname “Icarus of Lautertal.” For this exhibition, many works from the Gustav Mesmer foundation (machines, original drawings, photographs, film, etc.) are on show on the two floors of the art et marges musée…

Save the world ?
Design aims to heal incurable diseases, enter cities, proclaim messages of peace, arrange plans to destroy misery, and build shelters to house the population in the event of a global disaster.
Whether upset by tragic event or called by a higher force, the authors presented in this exhibition feel compelled by a mission intrinsically connected with their creativity. They all give their utmost to devise imaginary solutions to repair or save the world.

Atelier Goldstein, Collection ABCD/Bruno Decharme, La galerie christian berst art brut, La Fabuloserie, La S Grand Atelier, The Museum of Everything, Museum Dr. Guislain.
Exhibition mounted under “MULTI ORDINARY”, the inaugural edition of a festival dedicated to marginal performing arts.
