/DuflonRacz/ is a gallery for contemporary art and outsider art ("neuve invention") in Bern, Switzerland. Our three gallery spaces host seven exhibitions a year, focusing on regionally established and internationally emerging artists. The gallery aims to create challenging and exciting exhibitions that attract a wider public to engage with art as viewers and collectors. With our second gallery space in Brussels (opened in September 2016) we created an international platform to develop our artists' potential as well as introduce new collectors and artists to our gallery. Our project space /Links/ invites emerging artists and curators to experiment with different exhibition formats. Artists are encouraged to work with the characteristics of our gallery spaces, often resulting in displays and installations created specifically for the gallery. /DuflonRacz/ also supports art editions and publications.
The gallery has a tradition of showing so-called outsider art. We still sell work by artist considered to belong to this category, as indicated in the "neuve invention" section of our website. And although this is no longer the gallery's main focus, we are interested in positions by autodidactic artists or artist who use and reflect on "naive" elements in their work. Usually our December show is dedicated to a such a position or group show.
