Every thursday evening the members of the handycapped-home meet with Monika Niebergall in the pavillion to paint together. Through painting, horizons are opened and give them the possibility to express themselfes. Everyone is different and special – and Monika Niebergall sees every member as normal a person. “ART brut” is a style of art, that was created for amateurs, children and handicapped people by the french painter “Jean Dubuffet”.
Art knows no handicap – handicap knows Art! Get over your own limits to see Art as such – and not otherness in the foreground. By donations and selling the pictures the annual amount of 15.000 € can be guaranteed. The paintings are colour intensive pictures – they are unique by its expressiveness which shows the pure soul.
