The Club Workshops30 years of the Theo Van Gogh Therapeutic Club
30 years ago, the Theo Van Gogh Therapeutic Club opened its doors at the initiative of Guy Deleu. Convinced of the value of taking psychotic patients out of an exclusively medical approach, this psychiatrist defends the idea of an intermediate place, outside the hospital, that can lead them to social integration and autonomy.
From the start, the artistic dimension formed the nucleus of the Theo Club. The exhibition at BPS22 aims to witness 30 years of performances at the heart of the Workshops; revealing its creative abundance as well as the various personalities who have frequented it. Among them, artists who have revealed themselves and some will be honoured in order to reveal the singularity and the quality of their artistic work.
Curators: Nancy Casielles (BPS22) and Omer Özcetin (Théo Van Gogh Club)
