''The Collector'' stand was an insight into a collector's study, with works scattered in the setting. ''Asylum'', the stand this year, is inspired by the process of Jean Dubuffet's work.

Three rooms set to the quiet sound of opera music including a doctor's study, a patient's room and a communal area of an asylum with scrawls covering the walls make up the display.
