visions4people offers a kaleidoscopic overview of artistic research in the context of psychiatric environments and conveys their particular challenges. What form can design visions and interventions take when people are central? Tyyne Claudia Pollmann has addressed this question and explored it in a cooperation between the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy Charité Berlin Mitte and weißensee kunsthochschule berlin, together with students, patients, and staff of the psychiatric clinic.
Scientific and artistic contributions, photographs, and polyphonic research material reveal to the reader the multifaceted experiences gained from this cooperation. The book is a valuable contribution for specialists and students from the disciplines of art, architecture, design, psychology, psychiatry, anthropology, and sociology who are planning a similar initiative—and a basis for novel collaborative projects in which the patient's role in a psychiatry changes fundamentally: from being affected to getting involved.
