“Friedl Kubelka: Atelier d’Expression (Dakar)” introduces the artist’s most recent work. She visited the Atelier d’Expression in Dakar. a psychiatric clinic in Senegal, which gives patients an opportunity to pursue, among other things, artistic activity. Portraits and artworks of the patients are shown in the book., supplemented by Kubelka’s own travel experiences.
The book features a text by the artist, as well as texts on the exhibition, on the “Citizens of the Virtual” of Senegal and on the so-called “Outsider Art”. Friedl Kubelka’s Atelier d’Expression shows a dual sense of resistance that is not content with “common sense”. It enables subversive thought and action, pushing through to new spaces in process.
