SWR2 contemporaries with Thomas Röske, head of the Prinzhorn Collection

The Heidelberg collection Prinzhorn, one of the most interesting art collections in Germany, is often qualified as a fund of “outsider art”, because it is based on artistic evidence from psychiatric institutions. Hans Prinzhorn, the founder of the collection, spoke in 1922 of “Artistry of the mentally ill”. Thomas Röske, on the other hand, insists on selecting quality. He finds in the works of the collection, above all, aesthetic answers to urgent social issues. In an interview with Dietrich Brants, SWR2, he explains how to understand psychic exceptional experiences in the context of art. Until today this is a political issue.
