5. Expositions

On this page you will find an overview of temporary art expositions in Europe, that have payed attention to creators of outsider environments. Since an environment as such is not transportable, it cannot be exhibited in a museum. So, in the expositions listed below, in general one will see photo's and video's of environments, maybe supplemented with some transportable items from these sites.
