21 Palindromes, 1968
writing on enamel street signs, each: 25 cm x 70 cm

Born in Lucerne (Switzerland) in 1930, died in Berlin in 1985. Most of the palindromes at the buildings´ walls of the “Giardino” were invented by André Thomkins, a close friend of Daniel Spoerri who adored him for his talent for drawing. The palindromes illustrate the intellectual character that is typical for Thomkins´ work as a whole.
