Specialized in art brut, the christian berst gallery has been demonstrating that art brut is not limited to a single period, a geographical area or even a formal spectrum. Rather, it questions the notion of individual mythology dear to Harald Szeemann. Internationally recognized as a reference in its field, the christian berst art brut gallery puts its passion at the service of these unconventional creators whether they are “classics” already established by museums and collections or contemporary discoveries destined for recognition from the art world. Located in the Marais in a space of 200m2, the gallery is also known for its exhibitions (seven per year) often assigned to curators, its participation in international fairs and its numerous publications which attract an ever increasing audience to the mysteries of art brut. In June 2020, Christian Berst will co-direct with Raphaël Koenig, the Cerisy conference devoted to art brut.
