For many years now, the museum has been working with the “Ray of Light” organisation, which is a support group for people with mental disorders. Once again, the organisation is putting together an exhibition, “Mind Games: Cage.”

Public stereotypes and myths about people with such health problems probably suggest that the exhibition should be totally incomprehensible or shocking. Instead, the aim of the show is to speak to simple humanity and to eliminate biases which hold that people with schizophrenia are dangerous to others and must be isolated. At the same time, the exhibition will also speak to that which is unique about such people – that which makes their artworks very much different.
