Gerhard Richter | About Painting 21.10 until 18.02.2018

Gerhard Richter (°1932, Dresden) is widely regarded as one of the most important artists living and working today, and is considered to be a re-inventor of painting in the Postwar era. This exhibition, organized for his 85th birthday and in cooperation with the Kunstmuseum Bonn, comprises approximately 25 early works, whereby his rarely seen curtain and window paintings provide an entry point to his artistic vocabulary. These works are echoed by a selection of five more recent paintings and sculptures, to mirror fundamental aspects of Richter’s work in the 1960s with his contemporary artistic activities.

Lecture series organized in collaboration with the Herbert Foundation
3 December 2017: Dieter Schwarz speaks on Gerhard Richter’s idea of ‘Oeuvre’ (Herbert Foundation, Coupure Links 627a, 9000 Gent). Further dates are to be announced soon on

An exhibition catalogue with contributions by Christoph Schreier (ed.), Philippe van Cauteren, Stephan Berg and Martin Germann was published with Hirmer Verlag.
