The broad term "outsider art" today unites the work of neuro-distinct artists, people with experience of exclusion and authors without professional experience. The discussion of experts, curators and benefactors is devoted to the current situation of outsider art in the art market, the problem of definitions and official recognition of the work of artists who do not have the support of the professional community. Participants will answer the questions: Is outsider art marginal art today? How does this art get into institutions and why are there separate platforms for artists with special needs? The discussion can draw attention to the problem of outsider art, its position on the modern art scene and draw the attention of a wide audience to this phenomenon.
