Art Brut | The Collection
Edited by Sarah Lombardi
Essays by Michel Thévoz and Anic Zanzi
From the remarkable Art Brut Collection in Lausanne, Switzerland, comes Véhicules, the first book in an exciting new series.
The Art Brut Collection has created the Biennale de l’Art Brut, a project that capitalizes on the diversity of this superb collection of more than 60,000 works by grouping a selection of them into themed exhibitions. As movement was a recurring theme in Art Brut, the first of these shows, titled Vehicles, features Motooka locomotives, Franz Kernbeis’s bicycle, Willem van Genk’s airships, and Auguste Forestier’s boats.
The works represented here highlight a variety of approaches to motion in the form of sculptures, drawings, and constructions by more than 50 artists.
