The galerie gugging is one of the most important international venues for the presentation and creation of unspoiled, original art with its own formal language. The French artist Jean Dubuffet defined this style as art brut. For 29 years now, the gallery has been exhibiting works by the Gugging Artists and their international colleagues with the aim of making their work more visible within the framework of contemporary art and promoting previously unknown artists. The gallery sees itself as part of the Art Brut Center Gugging, embedded in the atelier gugging, the House of Artists, the museum gugging and The Private Foundation – Artists from Gugging. The proximity of the place of origin of the works by the Gugging Artists and their presentation is unique in the world. In the wonderful environment in the middle of the Vienna Woods, artistic works are produced and new works are created every day. The galerie gugging – a hotspot of the art brut scene – has always been a place of encounter and artists such as Arnulf Rainer, Peter Pongratz, Gerhard Roth, and David Bowie as well as London fashion designer Christopher Kane have been inspired by the Gugging Artists. Since 2018, artworks from Gugging have also been an integral part of the collection of the Museum of Modern Art New York (MoMA).
