The Endless Enigma: Dali and the magicians of multiple meaning
DÜSSELDORF  •  museum kunst palast  •  Ongoing
Taking its title directly from that of a painting done by Salvador Dali in the year 1938, the museum kunst palast is presenting The Endless Enigma, an exhibition devoted to the phenomena of ambiguity in art spanning epochs and continents, and for the first time displaying examples from other cultural spheres together with works of artists such as Dali.

Roughly 250 select works attest to the many fantastic ways of artificially playing with human perception, as can be traced throughout all cultures from the late eleventh century up to today. Thus the exhibition features not only works by such artists as Guiseppe Arcimboldo, Josse de Momper, Max Ernst, M.C. Escher, René Magritte, Sigmar Polke, Man Ray, and André Thomkins, but also unknown works from China, India, Persia and Africa as well as painted stones (Collection Guilini, Milano), but also the humorous erotic pictures so popular in Europe around 1900.
