Marcel Broodthaers

Belgian poet, photographer, film-maker and artist Marcel Broodthaers was born in Brussels and began as a poet. By aged 16-17 he had some contacts with the Belgian Surrealists, especially Magritte, who gave him a copy of Mallarmé’s Un Coup de Dés. Magritte’s paintings with words, in which there is a contradiction between the painted word and the painted object, were later a crucial influence on him. Third Drawer Down Studio have collaborated with MoMA New York on this collection for the Marcel Broodthaers retrospective 2016.
