Art Brut

The label ‘art brut’ (French: ‘raw art’ or ‘rough art’) was created by French artist Jean Dubuffet to describe art created outside the boundaries of official culture; Dubuffet focused particularly on art by insane-asylum inmates and children. This series of photographs shows the Csepel Works, a former industrial district in Budapest, Hungary. This place was an important location during the age of Communism, but today it is used by the periphery of society as a meeting point. In this series I have expropriated the works of these people. I cut out the art works from their original place with the help of my camera and put them in a different context.
