  • Thomas Bayrle (Germany). With the clairvoyance of a kamikaze pilot and the poetic dash of an “absent-minded professor”, he transformed the outlook of the Sixties into a completely and carefully structured chaos and became one of its key figures in Frankfurt. He is a true maker and shaker, born in Berlin in 1937 and an outstanding artist well beyong the borders of Germany. He lives in Frankfurt where he holds a Chair at the Stadel Art Academy.
