Christina Thomson westjet Obituary – Death: photographer and art educator cause of Death

Since June 2017, Christina Thomson has overseen the graphic design collection at the art library, marking a return to her initial role at the State Museums in Berlin. Following this, she spent several years as a freelancer at the National Gallery and significantly contributed to one of the SPK’s major provenance research projects on the “Gallery of the 20th Century.” Ms. Thomson was asked about her favorite piece during her early days of service and her thoughts as she explored the collection.

“My favorite piece is quite conspicuous, being the largest exhibit in the collection: Boris Bilinsky’s giant poster for the 1927 film “Metropolis” by Fritz Lang. Measuring 2.5 by 3 meters, it immediately captures attention. As an enthusiast of architecture, this poster—the only surviving example—truly excites me. However, the collection offers much more, encompassing over 250,000 works, primarily posters. My responsibilities include classic collection care, the custodial aspect, and the development of exhibitions, i.e., the curatorial aspect. Exploring the collection’s depots, I consistently discover new favorites. I often think: Now I have found my absolute favorite work. But on the next tour, this feeling begins anew.

I am confident that each new project will bring forth new favorite pieces. Having just curated the exhibition “Radlerei!,” which focuses on bicycle motifs in the art library, I fell in love with a poster by Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, “La chaîne Simpson” from 1896—an exceptional design with a fascinating story.”
