Die Brücke Lahr e.V - das Atelier

“The Atelier”, a self-helping project for people with psychiatric experience.

The participants are offered the opportunity to develop their individual creative potentials. In contrast to traditional art therapeutic work the Atelier is an open project, in which the artists organize themselves. The resulting artworks yearly are presented in exhibitions. They also can be rent or bought. Besides creative working the building and maintaining of social contacts also are important topics at the studio.

The Atelier is connected with other outsider art projects, for example the “Sammlung Prinzhorn”, Heidelberg, “Der Wolf in der Säule”, Zürich, “La Tinaia”, Florenz
