University of Granada in Spain offers course in Art Brut
The course Art Brut: Parallel Worlds. Brutality and Sincerity in Art is being offerred at the University of Granada (Spain).
This course will focus on the interdisciplinary analysis of the work of artists of different nationalities who, without having received a formal education, develop their work outside the commercial circuits of art with their own poetic and creative process, resulting in creations that don't presribe to all norms of the contemporary artistic world. This is sometimes referred as Outsider Art or Art Brut.
There will be a tour through unique collections such as La Fabuloserie, L'Aracine or the one gathered by Jean Dubuffet in Switzerland, all the result of a different and revolutionary historiographic and artistic approach.
Two workshops will be carried out: the one proposed by Los Hermanos Oligor and Microscopy and another one of drawing proposed by the director of the course and titular professor of the Department of Drawing of the University of Granada Dª.Asunción Jódar Miñarro.
