Art Brut und Psychiatrie: Gugging 1946-1986 - Leo Navratil

£60.00

Product description

Leo Navratil was an Austrian psychiatrist and author, who worked at the Gugging psychiatic institute in Vienna. He is particularly known for his work with patients who displayed artistic and creative talents, some of whose works went on to be publicly displayed. In this book, which is written in German, Navrastil discusses and shows some of the works which his patients produced. He also considers the relationship between a psychiatric environment and the artistic potential of his patients.

Leo Navratil berichtet in diesem Buch nicht nur über die künstlerische Laufbahn der bekanntesten seiner Patienten – wie Johann Hauser, Oswald Tschirtner, August Walla oder Ernst Herbeck -, sondern vermittelt einen anschaulichen Eindruck des reichen kreativen Potentials, das in einer psychiatrischen Anstalt vorhanden ist.
