The exhibition The Magritte Machine at the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza is the first retrospective on René Magritte (1898-1967) to be held in Madrid since the event organised by the Fundación Juan March in 1989. After its Madrid showing it will travel to the CaixaForum in Barcelona.

The exhibition’s title refers to its focus on the systematic element present in the work of this great Surrealist painter, who repeatedly and obsessively returned to his major themes, albeit with unexpected variations: words and images, figure and background, the painting and the mirror, animal camouflage, alteration of scale, and finally the face and the mask.

Curated by Guillermo Solana, the museum’s artistic director, the exhibition brings together 70 works, including paintings and works on paper, together with a selection of photographs and films.

INTERVIEW: BIRGIT GÜNTHER

Interviews | November 16, 2020

I studied interior design with painting at Prof. Manfred Hollmann at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich. I was born 1962 in Ludwigsburg, Germany, and I have been living and working in Munich for over 35 years. I find inspiration for my painting in nature and through people which I interpret in different ways. Colors, color compositions, color sensations and spatial effects are important of my work, which should reflect the joy of life. A certain motif is not always easily recognizable in the abstract paintings. The viewers are invited to feel lightness, openness or tensions and to let their emotions run free. I am a member of a professional group of female painters. We meet annually and discuss new techniques with lecturers and develop and improve our painting skills. Read more
