Museum of outsider art. Since its founding in 1984 and the first exhibition of 1986, Art & Marge – now the ‘art )&( marges [margins] museum’ – promotes artists outside the mainstream. These self-taught artists, often called “outsider artists”, work either individually or in creative workshops in institutions for people who are mentally unwell or who are mentally challenged. In addition to the permanent collection, temporary exhibitions will establish a dynamic dialogue with paintings by professional artists from the mainstream who are active in their cultural surroundings – the boundary between ‘insider’ and ‘outsider’ art? The ‘Art & Marges’ museum is not a ghetto museum but a venue for exchange, where individuality is of prime importance and where all efforts are made to make all target groups feel at home.
Open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between 11.00 am and 5.30 pm by appointment only.
