A modest Belgian artist led the most ordinary life. He never tried to stand out or shock the audience. He was a simple man in a bowler hat, who did not even have his own studio – that’s why the artist worked in the dining room all his life. But this is just the prose of life.

Magritte's art is rightfully considered one of the most intellectually powerful and full of meanings. Each of his paintings is a rebus, a riddle for a sharp mind, a mockery of reality and an undermining of established rules.

Magritte's painting is at the intersection of art and philosophy. His playing with language, visuals and meanings fascinated Europe. How did he do it? Let's find out at the lecture!

Who is the lecturer?
I will be your guide to the world of art!

I believe that art is a kind of love when you love and are beloved at the same time.

I am a philosopher and a curator. I am engaged in everything related to the perception of works of art.

I love marmalade. I've read Homer and Dante in the subway. I perceive the history of art as an exciting novel in which scandals/intrigues/investigations are interwined with ideas and concepts.
