Gerhard Richter: Text by Gerhard Richter
Book DescriptionGerhard Richter is one of the foremost artists of his generation. 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 the master of the paradoxical statement. The original volume of Gerhard Richters writings was published in 1995. This new book makes available a wider and more up-to-date selection of Richters texts, from all periods of his career, many translated for the first time. The collection includes letters and interviews; public statements about specific exhibitions; private reflections from personal correspondence; answers to questions posed by critics; and, excerpts from journals discussing the intentions, subjects, methods and sources of his works. Accompanied by biographical photographs from the artists personal collection, these texts form a brilliantly illuminating commentary on Richters art, as well as providing a thought-provoking discussion on the status of art in society today.

The four paintings (Abstrakte Bilder 937/1-4) from 2014 are known as the Ausschwitz Cycle. They are based on four photographs, which prisoners took of an execution in Birkenau concentration camp in 1944 and which have preoccupied Richter for years. He photographed numerous details of these paintings and then chose 93 photos for this book.
