Rebecca Russo is a philanthropist, art lover, producer, “maecenas”, art collector, and President of the Videoinsight® Foundation, a collection that selects contemporary art containing high psychological impact whilst offering real-diagnostic and psycho-therapeutic potential.
Over the past decade, Russo has been showing the art – mostly video works – to her patients, using it as a kind of Rorschach test for self-reflection, and since 2012 the Videoinsight® Method has been used in medical research at university hospitals around the world. At the heart of it all, the Foundation’s mission is to carry on the experience of psycho-physic wellness through contemporary art, whilst remaining a private, non-profit organization.
Russo’s aim for the Videoinsight® Foundation is to promote contemporary art in the same realm. Application of the Videoinsight® Method lies within medicine, diagnosis, therapy, and rehabilitation, with the wish to create Videoinsight® Rooms in social organizations for promotion and protection of health and wellness.
In collaboration with Rebecca Russo and the Videoinsight® Method, we present a second online exhibition that showcases works from the private collection.
