Brut Art Collection
About Brut Art Collection, Lausanne
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.

Very interesting and engaging view of artists outside the "standard" definition of art, surprising and touching. The museum is well organized with descriptions of the artists and their works in French and English. We expected to do a quick tour of half an hour and ended up staying for an hour and a half.
Phenomenal collection! Really eye opening art experience that you will not get in any other museum. Makes you reconsider what art is and what it means to be creative!
An fascinating and easily overlooked collection of art from people on the fringes of society. I would definitely recommend a visit.
One of a kind, very good art collection, well kept.
ANGIELSKI 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.
