GERHARD RICHTER AT BUCERIUS KUNST FORUM

GERHARD RICHTER AT BUCERIUS KUNST FORUM

Luckily had time to check the Gerhard Richter exhibition at the Bucerius Kunst Forum today in Hamburg, showing the development of his paintings based on magazine photos from the 60s which became a signifying style and with hindsight created a rebirth in painting, freeing it from expected conventions

Reflecting the banal and the sensational at the same time, showing the power of these images at a time when television and other representations of images were few, looking at them now in todays super mediated culture they take on a whole new resonance.

The exhibition is on until May 15 and it’s brilliant.
