THOMAZONI, Andresa Ribeiro  and  FONSECA, Tania Mara Galli. The work of art as a territory of existence. Fractal, Rev. Psicol. [online]. 2011, vol.23, n.3, pp.523-534. ISSN 1984-0292.

"Oficina de Criatividade" was established in 1990 in "Hospital Psiquiátrico São Pedro" (RS), it constitutes a space that allows users to create artistic mental patients. From the "Acervo da Oficina de Criatividade", began a cartographic survey of the Collection Luiz Guides, one of the attendees. We are interested in exploring the boundaries between life and sensitive work of a guy locked up for 60 years in the asylum system. We seek, therefore, an exploration of the forces that cross the body and whose ink marks, point us to not only gestures but also the creation of existential territories.

Keywords : art; madness; territory of existence; cartography.
