Carles Guerra: Therapeutic art and Art Brut

Carles Guerra tells how Tosquelles was a pioneer in opening up the psychiatric hospital to a host of artistic practices. He used art, film, theatre and writing to promote the patients' social ties and humanize their lives. In contrast with art as therapy, Guerra also talks about Art Brut, a label created by Jean Dubuffet to classify the art produced by the marginalized or mentally ill and make it profitable.
