In the artistic landscape, Atelier 10 is an unusual project in several senses. This art platform established both an atelier for artists and a gallery for exhibitions in a former baking factory.
With the goal of filling a gap in the sponsoring and perceptual offerings of the art world, Atelier 10 primarily supports the artistic achievements of persons with health-related or cognitive disabilities.
Categories such as Art Brut or Outsider Art have been used in previous decades in order to give a name to art from this dynamic field. Atelier 10 stands for the endeavour to operate beyond these classifications and to situate art at the centre of a society’s cultural life.
