Outsider Art Museum Amsterdam
The Netherlands have its own Outsider Art Museum, with world-class works of art by national and international outsider artists The museum have its home in the Hermitage Amsterdam. The museum focuses on contemporary outsider art of works by scores of artists from Britain, France, Iran, Japan and the Netherlands. Outsider art refers to art made by people who did not study at art academies. This movement attracted widespread interest after the First World War. The psychiatrist Hans Prinzhorn published the book “Bildnerei der Geisteskranken” illustrated with a wide range of art works by patients in psychiatric institutions. This book inspired many artists, such as Salvador Dali, Karel Appel, Asger Jorn and Jean Dubuffet. In 1972, the British
Art historian Roger Cardinal coined the phrase ‘outsider art’. The Biennale of 2013 launched outsider art into the international art scene.
In the museum is also an artshop (Outsider Art Artotheek), where you can rent or buy works of art, a Studio with artists at work (Outsider Art Ateliers), and where visitors can follow art & painting classes (Kunstworkshops).
