The exhibition begins with a Viennese 'madhouse' and an eccentric sculptor from the 18th century. It then moves on to the architecture and patients of Steinhof, a state-of-the-art psychiatric institution built on the edge of Vienna in the early 20th century and partly designed by Otto Wagner, the leader of the modern architecture movement.
