Outsider art has exploded onto the international art scene, gaining widespread attention for its startling originality and visual power. As an expression of raw creativity, outsider art remains associated with self-taught visionaries, psychiatric patients, trance mediums, eccentric outcasts, and unschooled artistic geniuses who create things outside of mainstream artistic trends and styles. Outsider Art: Visionary Worlds and Trauma provides a comprehensive guide through the contested terrain of outsider art and the related domains of art brut, visionary art, "art of the insane," and folk art. The book examines the history and primary issues of the field as well as explores the intersection between culture and individual creativity that is at the very heart of outsider art definitions and debates. Daniel Wojcik's interdisciplinary study challenges prevailing assumptions about the idiosyncratic status of outsider artists. This wide-ranging investigation of the art and lives of those labeled outsiders focuses on the ways that personal tragedies and suffering have inspired the art-making process. In some cases, trauma has triggered a creative transformation that has helped artists confront otherwise overwhelming life events. Additionally, Wojcik's study illustrates how vernacular traditions, religious worldviews, ethnic heritage, and popular culture have influenced such art. With its detailed consideration of personal motivations, cultural milieu, and the potentially therapeutic aspects of art making, this volume provides a deeper understanding of the artistic impulse and human creativity.

Rethinking Place In South Asian And Islamic Art 1500 Present

Place plays a fundamental role in the structuring of the discipline of Art History. And yet, place also limits the questions art historians can ask and impairs analysis of objects and locations in the interstices of established, ossified categories. The chapters in this interdisciplinary volume investigate place in all of its dynamism and complexity: several call into question traditional constructions regarding place in Art History, while others explore the fundamental role that place plays in lived experience. The particular nexus for this collection lies at the intersection and overlap of two major subfields in the history of art: South Asia and the Islamic world, both of which are seemingly geographically determined, yet at the same time uncategorizable as place with their ever-shifting and contested borders. The eleven chapters brought together here move from the early modern through to the contemporary, and span particular monuments and locations ranging from Asia and Europe to Africa and the Americas. The chapters take on the question of place as it operates in more obvious settings, such as architectural monuments and exhibitionary contexts, while also probing the way place operates when objects move or when the very place they exist in transforms dramatically. This volume engages place through the movement of objects, the evocation of senses, desires, and memories and the on-going project of articulating the parameters of place and location.

Raw Vision magazine was first published in 1989 at a time when Outsider Art was almost a clandestine, secret area of art, only just a few people around the world knew about. The first editions of Raw Vision magazine presented works that have since become world famous but which, at the time, were shown to a wide audience for the first time. The early editions of Raw Vision soon sold out and over the years became expensive and sought-after collectors' items. Features include: The Art of Entrancement: the mediumistic and spiritual in Outsider Art; Word and Image in American Folk Art: a survey of Southern folk artists; Nek Chand's Rock Garden of Chandigarh: the world's largest sculpture park and visionary environment. Autour de l'Art Brut: an exploration of Dubuffet's theories of Art Brut. The work of SPACES, the Los Angeles based conservation organisation who were instrumental in saving the famous Watts Towers. Schroder-Sonnenstern: the demented erotic vision of this German draughtsman. Haiti and the school of Saint Soleil - contemporary works form the vibrant artistic world of Haiti. Willem van Genk: powerful Dutch visionary. Gustav Mesmer: Outsider and his flying machines, a latter day lcarus. Billy Morey - creating against all the odds - how art rescued him from a cycle of crime and punishment.
