“nie reime, da kann akademie rein”, “Dogma I am God”: the palindromes of André Thomkins (1930–1985) are imbued with a principle of inversion which also guides a significant portion of his visual work.

Referencing the ideas of Surrealism, the Swiss painter, illustrator and poet created works which deal playfully with a representational connection between a “here” and a “there”. With wit and a refined passion for technical experimentation, André Thomkins subverts reality and is at the same time its keenest interpreter.

Supported by the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, which manages André Thomkin’s estate, alongside his so-called Scharnierbilder, Lackskins and Rollagen, the exhibition features his Permanentszenen and Schwebsel pictures, as well as lesser-known drawings, watercolours and objects. More than 30 years after the artist’s death, this is the first survey exhibition in a Berlin museum to focus on his work.

A special exhibition of the Nationalgalerie, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.
