Crazy Living


Exhibition about visions of living and living in the city in collaboration with East-West architecture.

Who wouldn’t want to live in a sustainable caravan with animals on the roof in Festival City? Or have dinner at Ghana’s Fried Crispy Chicken Restaurant?

In December 2022 artists from Outsider Art Ateliers did a workshop with 11 employees of Oost West Architecten. During this workshop, they dealt with a number of themes in small groups. Topics such as ‘housing shortage’, ‘sustainable building’ and ‘making the city more accessible to animals’ were discussed. Other artists wanted to depict their personal interests like ‘Paris and ‘a city in Ghana’.

In the weeks following the workshop, a number of artists continued to work on these themes and it was decided in a democratic consultation what title the exhibition should have: ‘Crazy Living’.

In addition to the workshop results, the exhibition Crazy Living shows autonomous sculptures, paintings and drawings with the theme of architecture.
