Abstract In its strictest sense, the term art brut refers to art created outside the boundaries of official culture and often focuses on the work of people who live in mental institutions. This program focuses on the art of Josef "Pepi" Hofer and several other artists with mental retardation and similar disabilities as it captures them in workshops and at a showing and award ceremony at The House of Art, Munich. Although not designated as art therapy, the effects of creating art are visibly therapeutic as these individuals explore issues of sexuality and other areas of human experience and imagination through depictions both complex and deceptively simple.
