|Making art to keep from losing our mind: a contribution to the psychopathology of configuration
23 May 2020> We've been reading Artistry of The Mentally Ill: A Contribution to the Psychology and Psychopathology of Configuration by Hans Prinzhorn for some time now... if u can call it "reading," it's more of a coffeetable type of book u skim thru looking at pictures, but there is contextual text, about what drives schizo minds to create art + various case studies. Think we 1st learned of the Prinzhorn collection reading In The Realms of the Unreal : Insane Writings, which is the same idea but texts by loonies instead of visual art. Copies of The Mentally Ill were crazy expensive then, but in 2019 Martino republished it.
