In 1967, the Boymans-van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam organized a retrospective exhibition dedicated to the Belgian artist René Magritte. Lothar Wolleh traveled to Brussels several times this year and visited the Magritte family in the run-up to the exhibition.
With his photographs, Lothar Wolleh created an intimate portrait of René Magritte's domestic life and his artistic practice. In particular, photographs in which Magritte interacts with his own paintings are of particular importance. Not least because of their enigmatic character, Magritte's paintings became part of our collective memory. Lothar Wolleh's photographs contribute to this collective memory. Magritte died shortly after the opening of the exhibition, which gave these photographs such high status - and also enabled Magritte to have the 'last word'.
The exhibition is part of the EMOP Berlin - European Month of Photography.
