Collection of works „made by schizophrenic patients“ at the Pedro Psychiatric Center
Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). got some information about outsider art in Brazil, although this term is not used in this description from Rio which informs in a oversized psychiatric way - less in congruence with contemporary reception of outs-ider art as (normal) part of the art scene. Self-description reads like this:

„The Museum of Images of the Unconscious had its origin in the workshops of pain-ting and modeling of the department of occupational therapy organized by Dr. Nise da Silveira in 1946 at the Peter II Psychiatric Center. It happened that the produc-tions of these workshops was so abundant and showed itself to be of such great scientific and utilitarian interest in psychiatric treatment that painting and modeling assumed a special position. From this was born the idea of organizing a museum to unite the works created in these departments with the idea of offering the research conditions for the study of images and symbols and for accompanying the evolution of clinical cases through the spontaneous plastic productions.

On the 20th of May 1952 the Museum of Images of the Unconscious was opened in a small room. On the 28th September 1956 it was moved to more spacious quarters opened in the presence of the famous psychiatrists Henry Ey, Paris; Lopez Ibor, Madrid; Ramon Sarró, Barcelona, who were in Rio at the invitation of the University of Brazil. Already by that date according to Professor Lopez Ibor, the Museum of Images of the Unconscious "had an artistic psychopathological collection unique in the world". The museum went on growing. Directly attached to the painting and mo-deling workshops, it receives every day new plastic documents. Its collection about 300.000 documents including canvases, paintings on cardboard or paper, drawings and models. The Museum is a live center for study and research on the images of the unconscious, open to students from all school of psychiatry.

On June 7th, 1978, Ronald Laing (British anti-psychiatrist, - note from editor wrote that the work carried out here "represents an extremely im-portant contribution to the scientific study of the psychotic process". Since July 1968 a study group has functioned, as an activity of the Museum, its chief aim being the accompanying of the psychotic process by means of half-yearly exhibitions of pain-tings. This study group has a distinctly marked interdisciplinary character which al-lows for the constant exchange between clinical experience, theoretical knowledge of psychology and psychiatry, cultural anthropology, history, art and education.“
