Gerhard Richter as a German Artist

Date + Time

Tuesday, November 05, 2002

Location

Phyllis Wattis Theater

Overview

Many of Richter's artistic choices result from his working in a politically divided postwar Germany that was actively seeking to regain and renew modernist practices that had been suppressed during the Third Reich. In this talk, Weber explores Richter's work and the historical contexts that produced it.
