A Pilgrimage to Art Brut’s Austrian Heart

An Austrian museum presents a wide-ranging survey of works made over almost 50 years by residents and other autodidacts associated with the Art Brut Center Gugging, near Vienna, entitled “gehirngefühl.! kunst aus gugging von 1970 bis zur gegenwart“. The exhibition’s mouthful of a title, with its quirky punctuation, translates into English as “brain feeling.! art from gugging from 1970 to the present” and takes its odd key phrase from a drawing by the Gugging artist Johann Garber (born 1947) showing an assortment of colored blobs labeled “DAS KLEINE FADE GEHIRNGEFÜHL” (“the small, dull brain feeling”). Scheduled for a long run, gehirngefühl.! will remain on view through April 11, 2021.
