Herbert Heithausen

*1947, Selm

Because of a mental disability as a result of a neonatal brain damage, Heithausen always lived at home and could not visit a school. From 1965 to 1982, he lived in a hospital in Lengerich, until he was included in a group of the Alexianer. He worked in a workshop here. Since 1990, he painted periodically in the Kunsthaus and was part of exhibitions with his works.
