Magritte: This is Not a Biography

Vincent Zabus & Thomas Campi

Giddied by the prospect of promotion, Charles Singulier makes the whimsical decision to buy a bowler hat. It is a satisfying purchase, but there’s a problem: this particular hat once belonged to the Surrealist painter René Magritte, and by donning it Charles has unwittingly entered the artist’s unbridled, off-kilter world. The choice is clear: uncover the secrets of Magritte’s life and work – or be doomed to wear the hat forever.

Charles embarks on an exploration of Magritte’s imaginative landscape, examining the ideas and penetrating the mysteries of a paradoxical figure: a painter who didn’t like to paint; an instinctive anarchist who lived a suburban, petty bourgeois existence; a lonely, melancholy soul never far from his friends and collaborators.

Magritte: This is not a Biography paints a panoramic and revealing portrait of the great Surrealist, employing a playfulness and wit reminiscent of Magritte himself.
