Gugging

Gugging offers us a glimpse into the day-to-day lives of the residents of the Gugging House of Artists in Klosterneuburg, Austria, founded by Dr. Leo Navratil. Dr. Navratil’s objective in establishing it was not to socially rehabilitate his patients but rather, to empower them as artists. The Gugging artists’ works are now exhibited at galleries in Europe and the United States and are included in the world’s most important collections of outsider art.
