Museum im Lagerhaus. Stiftung für schweizerische Naive Kunst und Art Brut/Foudation of Swiss Naive Art and Art Brut.

The Museum im Lagerhaus and the affiliated foundation are specialized in Art Brut, Outsider Art and Naive Art created in Switzerland, especially to promote and preserve those artworks that grasp the specific cultural aspects and artistic traditions of Switzerland and Swiss artists. We aim to distingiush the museum as a plattform for art devoloped in border areas to open up a greater understanding of Outsider Art and art in general as well as human differences. Therefore the permanent exhibition of the collection and special shows constantly transgress the lines between genres and styles creating a crossover between Outsider Art by mentally ill or disabled artists, Naive Art and art from all fields at the fringe of society and also between contemporary art and the so called 'high art'. To create a site for artistic exchanges, experimenting and research and for communication internationally and in Europe the Museum im Lagerhaus is looking for international collaboration. The Museum im Lagerhaus is an independet museum located in an old warehouse, which was built up to a cultural centre of St. Gall including several ateliers, galleries, an exhibition space for contemporary art (Kunst Halle) and further cultural institutions.
