Barberini Museum Potsdam - Gerhard Richter: Abstraction

Gerhard Richter’s work has already been honored in major retrospectives. In 2002, the Museum of Modern Art in New York devoted a solo show to the artist. In 2011, Tate Modern in London, the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris mounted an exhibition that took a wide-ranging view of Richter’s life work, as encapsulated in its title, Panorama. Our exhibition, Gerhard Richter: Abstraction, also traces a broad arc from the 1960s to the artist’s more recent works. Unlike the retrospectives, however, the exhibition at the Museum Barberini concentrates upon a theme crucial to Richter’s painting: the abstract strategies and techniques employed across the artist’s oeuvre.
