Hans Prinzhorn

Last updated: October 23rd, 2021 at 4:10 PM

German psychiatrist Hans Prinzhorn 100 years ago collected not only medical histories, but also works created by his patients. This summer, his largest collection in the world with works from more than a century ago is visiting Heidelberg. The exhibition touches on a question that concerns the world of contemporary art: what is the norm and what is a deviation from the norm.

In 1919-1921 he practiced in a psychiatric clinic at Heidelberg University, replenished the collection of paintings and drawings of the mentally ill, which Emil Kraepelin began to collect.

After Prinzhorn's death, the art collection he had collected was abandoned and gathered dust in the attics of the University of Heidelberg. Several items from it were featured in the famous Nazi exhibition Degenerate Art. In 1980, the first wide exhibition of the collection's exhibits was held.
