GERHARD RICHTER. TEXT

GERHARD RICHTER (1932-)

Gerhard Richter - Text

Writings, Interviews and Letters 1961-2007

  1. Edited by Dietmar Elger
  2. Hans Ulrich Obrist

Gerhard Richter is one of the foremost painters of his generation. This substantial volume makes available a comprehensive selection of Richter\'s texts, several published for the first time.

The book forms a brilliantly illuminating commentary on Richter\'s art, as well as providing a thought-provoking discussion on the status of art and the artist in society today.

A great deal has been written about the remarkable heterogeneity of Richter\'s work, his seemingly wilful and defiant movement between abstract and figurative modes of representation, and his use of a variety of methods of applying paint to canvas. Central to his work is a strong set of values which throughout his career he has expressed in extensive notes and writings, and in provocative and memorable public declarations in which he shows himself to be the master of the paradoxical statement.

These texts come from all periods of his career: letters and interviews; public statements about specific exhibitions; private reflections drawn from personal correspondence; answers to questions posed by critics; and excerpts from journals discussing the intentions, subjects, methods and sources of his work from various periods.

Complete with a comprehensive appendix, and accompanied by over a hundred photographs of artworks, works in progress, exhibition installations, colleagues and family.

Dietmar Elger was an assistant to Richter and is Director of the Gerhard Richter Archive. He is also author of Gerhard Richter: Painter the only authorized biography of the artist. Hans Ulrich Obrist is currently co-director of Exhibitions and programmes and Director of International Projects at the Serpentine Gallery in London. Thames & Hudson published his book Formulas for Now in 2008.
