Dubuffet went on to form a collection of such works, which in 1971 he donated in its entirety to the City of Lausanne, where the Collection de l'Art Brut opened in February 1976.
First published for the fortieth anniversary of the museum's inauguration, this reedition retraces the birth of the Lausanne institution and addresses the key moments that have marked its development. It casts new light on the first event of its kind to be held outside the walls of the Compagnie de l'Art Brut, entitled L'Art Brut and presented in 1949 at the Galerie René Drouin in Paris.
Revisiting this event afresh is a perfect opportunity for assessing the critical impact of an exhibition that broke new ground at the time.
