FONSECA, Tania Mara Galli; THOMAZONI, Andresa Ribeiro; LOCKMANN, Vivian and BUTKUS, Vitor. Heterotopical spaces, overlapping images: meetings between art, madness and memory. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2009, vol.29, n.2, pp. 406-415. ISSN 1414-9893. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1414-98932009000200015.
The theme of this article is the process of cataloging of the works that have been produced in the Studio of Creativity Nise da Silveira, which is attended by interns of the Psychiatric hospital São Pedro, in Porto alegre, Rio Grande do Sul. During 17 years, since its foundation, this studio has been established as a place against oblivion, where singular temporalities can resist, through artistic creation, in spite of the time without duration that distinguishes the globalized cities. The process of cataloging has been developed as a collective production, congregating the hospital staff and the students from several areas, such as arts, Psychology and history (from public and private local universities). at least four significant collections, in the perspective of so-called Art Brut, were identified. These collections, which constitute an inestimable immaterial patrimony, require appropriate preservation and organization in order to become a technical reserve for research. Therefore the organization of these collections has been moved by an ethic purpose that considers the works of art testimonies of subjectivities, claiming the difference in its positivity.
