The Collection de l’Art Brut has
coproduced several documentary films on Art Brut creators. These films
enrich our understanding of the creators and their oeuvre: we obtain a
better grasp of Art Brut thanks to the spoken words, the gestures and
the work atmosphere of these creators.
The Collection has worked with notably the filmmakers Philippe
Lespinasse and Andress Alvarez, of Lokomotiv Films; Pier Nello and Erica
Manoni of Blue Films; Mario del Curto and Bruno Decharme.
The Collection de l’Art Brut bookshop also sells documentary films
released by other institutions.
