Friends and Partner

   Currently the former Soviet Union is lacking organizations and persons who collect and analyze art production in the field of Outsider Art.
Samples of Outsider Art may be found in collections of psychopathological expression or Naive Art. We would like to mention the following centers searching phenomena close to Outsider Art:

  • "Filantrop" firm (with Alexandre Ivanov leading the "Equilibrium" art project).
    The collection "Equilibrium" includes art works created by disabled artists (amateurs and professionals as well).

  • Russian Naive Art Collection of K.Bogemskaia & A.Turchin
    The collection was formed by K.Bogemskaia, one of the leading Russian specialists in naive art.
