A Swiss outsider art collection welcomes you


Aconcha Santz


The Tobias House is a dormitory and day care center at the same time. It offers people in need of soul care (adults with mental disabilities) a home, meaningful employment and a wide range of arts and education. Adult people who enjoy creative work and living together within a community are accepted. The aim of the Tobias House is the well-being of the people being looked after and the promotion and maintenance of the greatest possible independence. The individual talents and abilities are dealt with.

After the summer vacation, the website will introduce several artists who work in an anthroposophical urban institution, the Tobiashaus. This Image was taken during an exhibition of works by two of the artists. I didn't see this exhibition myself, but I was able to see works that are being made there during a visit and I was touched and found them so interesting and convincing. On the website www.tobias-haus.ch, the studio leads an absolute shadowy existence. Not least because of this, I have offered to present some works on the website and I am convinced that it will mean a lot for the artists to be able to show their work here, and that the website will be enriched with some touching works at the same time. The project starts after the summer vacation and it will take some time. I am looking forward to it myself and ask the visitors to be patient until the time comes!
