DIRECT ART GALLERY
Although “Outsider Art” is currently enjoying great attention, there are few professional galleries representing and promoting contemporary artists with intellectual or mental handicap. By positioning the DIRECT ART GALLERY in the center of the well-known galleries and museums of the attractive art metropolis Dusseldorf, Germany; its wide Outsider Art network becomes part of the contemporary art discourse.
Initiator Klaus-Peter Kirchner and art historian Natasha Kirchner have set the goal of presenting artistic positions of Outsider Art in exhibitions and publications. The aim of DIRECT ART GALLERY is to present intersections between the form and content of this art, leading to the formation of some brand new concepts. The gallery sees itself as a platform to sustainably promote talented artists with intellectual or mental handicap and great artistic potential.
