Museum of the Mind | Outsider Art and its collection

Museum of the Mind | Outsider Art

Museum of the Mind is fascinated by the work of art inside your head. Because nothing is as diverse, unique, powerful and yet so fragile as the human mind. Through its art and cultural programmes, the museum helps to bring mental health and neurodiversity into the open. Museum van de Geest | Outsider Art in Amsterdam is the only museum in the Netherlands with a large (international) Outsider Art collection. This is art produced by those who are art world – and often social – outsiders. Through their work, they show their inner world without being concerned by the opinions of the outside world. Museum van de Geest | Outsider Art is located at Amstel 51, in the exquisite building that also houses the Amsterdam Museum and the Hermitage Amsterdam. The museum also has a historical location in Haarlem, Museum of the Mind | Dolhuys, which explores the power and fragility of the human mind. Our museums provide a platform for those in society who were previously unrepresented in the cultural landscape. Museum of the Mind recently won the European Museum of the Year Award 2022. The European Museum Forum presents this annual award to a museum that contributes to a better understanding of the world, using innovative approaches and pushing back museum standards.
