Biography Johann Hauser
Johann Hauser lived from 1926 to 1996. Born in Bratislava, Johann Hauser emigrated with his family to Austria in 1943. In 1949, he was hospitalized at the Hospital Maria Gugging near Klosterneuburg due to a mental illness. His artistic talent was discovered in the clinic, where he was to remain until his death.
In 1965, his works were presented to the public for the first time. Since about 1980 numerous solo exhibitions followed. In 1981, the Austrian psychiatrist Leo Navratil founded the 'House of Artists', to which Hauser moved along with other artists, who established the so-called 'Gugging Group', today the most important exponent of the Art Brut.
