Brut Art Collection - Review

First off, “Brut Art” is art “created outside not only the boundaries of conventional culture, but by those outside mainstream society.” People on the fringes of society (schizophrenics, loners, lost souls, and the criminally insane) suddenly decide they want to be expressive y’know? This is art free of any moral value, traditional guidance, or creative convention. This is art outside the boundaries of expectations. They aren’t just a picture, but a biography of the people who created them. Jeff Dubuffet decided that these voices all needed a place to be heard and so he created this eclectic museum, and in 1975, donated it to the city of Lausanne. The art here will unsettle you, and it will liberate you.

Brut Art Collection, Lausanne Reviews

  • I loved my visit to this fascinating museum. Although relatively small, the museum is presented and maintained in a polished, professional way. I visited on a weekday morning, and it was not busy at all. The atmosphere was calm, relaxed and respectfully quiet, but not austere. Although there is trauma and tragedy in the stories of a lot of the artists and artwork, there is plenty of fun and colour to be found, too. I experienced moments that were variously disturbing, sobering, uplifting and inspiring. The most pervasive sense left by the collection as a whole is of passion, self-expression and individuality. The museum provides interesting biographical information about the artists in both French and English. The collection spans a good range of mediums and dates of creation. Refreshingly, women artists are well represented. It takes around two hours to casually view the collection. There is another couple of hours worth of documentary video footage available for viewing. For a museum of this quality, the tickets are good value.

  • Wonderful and unique museum in Lausanne. Conveniently located close to a bus stop. Regular special exhibits. May not be suitable for young children as the life stories of many of the artists are quite tragic.

  • A very interesting exhibition of the works of the people who never planned to be an artists. The stories... tragic, crazy, magical... Plus professional preparation of the exhibition.

  • Crazy museum! Unique art and concepts, and some touchy biographies of the artists. Appreciate it a lot every time I visit it! Parents with kids might wish to consider taking a closer look on the description beforehand. .

  • Interesting museum. Probably one of the largest collections of Art Brut I have ever seen (in terms of a permanent exhibition). Price is reasonable, but could probably do with being a bit cheaper. Worth a visit if you want to experience a different type of uninhibited modern art. Reading about the artists really helps understand their work better.
