LIMA, Elizabeth Maria Freire de Araújo. For a minor art: resonances between art, clinical practice and madness nowadays.Translated byLiliana Lopez. Interface (Botucatu) [online]. 2007, vol.3Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1414-3283.
We discuss the changes that were brought about in Brazil in the 20th century related to the acceptance of works of art produced in clinics or, in any way, other than those conventionally accepted by the artistic community. The enlargement of this field, now including dissenting works of art, seems to indicate a change in contemporary sensibility therefore shifting the relationships between art, clinical practice and madness itself.
