Simon Chang Artist Residency

Published: Thu, 08.09.2022 - 14:36

In the ten years of the Museum of Madness, cultural-artistic interventions have proven to be an important complement to the historical record of the institution's work. The abandoned institutional rooms of Cmurek Castle have become a space for remembering, witnessing and discussing the social construction of madness and mental health. A topic that has been pushed to the margins of society is brought to the centre of attention here, not because we want it to be, but because Cmurek Castle itself, with its Museum of Madness, encourages people to talk about it - and not with a psychiatrist, therapist or social worker - but with "non-experts", ordinary people and in a space with cultural value.
