Gerhard Richter - Künstlerbücher - Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin

On the occasion of Gerhard Richter’s 90th birthday, the Kunstbibliothek (Art Library) at the Neue Nationalgalerie is mounting a major survey exhibition of his artist’s books for the first time. The books, for which Richter consistently drew on his own imagery and experimented with abstract processes, are indispensible for understanding his oeuvre and self-image as an artist. With works from the Kunstbibliothek, the Nationalgalerie and the Kupferstichkabinett, as well as loans from the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden (State Art Collections) and the Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther und Franz König, Cologne, the exhibition provides unique insight into the artist’s inner world. …”
