Outsider Art Library

Outsider Art Library

First coined by Roger Cardinal in the 1970s, "Outsider art" is an umbrella term for art made by the mentally ill—art that is distinguished by visionary and/or obsessive qualities, or the development of fantasy worlds and individual mythologies. Below is a selection of our leading titles on outsider artists, from the 18th-micrographic marvels of Matthias Buchinger to Horst Ademeit's Polaroid photographs of unseen negative forces permeating everyday objects.
