Ever heard of an insider artist? Me neither. So why is it that the work of so many outsider artists is more interesting than lots of insider artists? Is it because they just come straight out with what moves them? We've got inspiring examples. And read our interview with Betsy Damon, the water woman. Unattached to GOs, NGOs or anybody, she ends up redesigning (for free) a multi-million dollar water project for Chengdu, a city of over 10 million. Plus Paul Van Slambrouck talks with Jonathan Parker who made the artworld spoof "Untitled."
