Feature article on the varying notions of 'Outsider' art.


If contemporary art's dependency upon context – which relational aesthetics simply extended – has resulted in an impasse, couldn't outsider art offer a glimpse at a way out?

'Outsider art is not a promotion of context at the expense of objects and artists; quite the reverse, it is an art that is all object and no context. The outsider object is not so much displaced à la Duchamp, Surrealism, Haim Steinbach etc, as de-placed.'
