Oil on canvas

The two paintings entitled Arrest [CR: 674/1-2] are a part of the cycle October 18, 1977 and refer to the detention of Andreas Baader and Holger Meins on the morning of 1st June 1972 in a courtyard in Frankfurt after a shootout. The RAF had shocked the country in the weeks before their arrest by carrying out numerous bombings and prompting one of the biggest enforcement actions in the history of the republic.

 

Richter draws on film stills the ARD took for the evening news at the seizure of the three men from an adjacent rooftop[1]. The same stills were published on 8th June 1972 by the magazine stern. Just like in the magazine the two paintings depict two sequential snapshots[2]: from above, the viewer can see inside a garage yard and several cars, one person and a bigger, dark vehicle can be recognized beside the white wall of the house. Richter transferred the black and white prototypes to the canvas and blurred the outlines so heavily that further details are hard to distinguish. Because of the wide distribution of the images in the press it must be assumed that contemporary viewers would nonetheless have been able to recognize the scene[3].

 

Depicted are a house and a garage yard in Frankfurt[4] where several cars are parked and an armoured car of the police is trying to close in Holger Meins and Andreas Baader that had barricaded themselves into one of the garages. After Baader was incapacitated by a shot to the thigh, Meins surrendered and was forced by the police to take off his clothes[5]. Arrest 1 [CR: 674-1] shows the bright front of the house as well as the armoured car and a line of parked cars in front of it. Holger Meins has stepped out of the garage but his figure is merely hinted at by a dark shadow. Arrest 2 [CR: 674-2] shows a scene a few moments later when the armoured car has pulled back and Holger Meins is just stepping out of his trousers. The blurring is still quite strong, however, overall it appears less agitated and calmer with some details identifiable. The outlines of the big house on the left by contrast are much hazier than in the first painting. 

 

Chronologically speaking, Arrest 1 and 2 and the Youth Portrait [CR: 672-1] are the prelude to the cycle October 18, 1977. The seizure of Baader, Raspe and Meins on the one hand is the start to their imprisonment of the protagonists of the cycle[6] and their consequential suicides, on the other hand the two paintings also stand in place of the fight between the RAF and the state authorities. Although the terrorist actions of the RAF had been brought to a temporary end with the arrests, the discussions about the adequacy of the measures taken to catch them and the accusation that the protection of the state had become irrationally brutal had just begun[7].

 

Although Richter never intended to depict the terrorists as some sort of heroes, he nevertheless saw them as victims of their ideology: “Not the victims of any specific ideology of the left or of the right, but of the ideological posture as such. This has to do with the everlasting human dilemma in general: to work for a revolution and fail… […] What interests me is something different […] the why and wherefore of an ideology that has such an effect on people; why we have ideologies at all; whether this is an inevitable, a necessary part of our make-up – or a pointless one, a mere hindrance, a menace to life, a delusion.” [8]

Exhibitions

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Gerhard Richter. 40 Years of Painting at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, this publication represents a broad range of Gerhard Richter's paintings of the last 40 years.

 

Gerhard Richter's diverse body of work questions broadly held attitudes about the inherent importance of stylistic consistency for an artist. It ranges from photo-based pictures all across the board to gestural abstraction. The 'natural' evolution of individual artistic sensibility, the spontaneous component of creativity and the relationship of technological means and mass media imagery to traditional studio methods and formats. Richter has always kept his distance from revolutionaries and conservatives alike regarding what painting “should” be. This has resulted in what has been among the most convincing renewal of painting's vitality in late 20th- and early 21st-century art.

 

This publication consists of a critical essay by curator Robert Storr, a rare interview with the artist himself, a chronology, an exhibition history, and nearly 300 colour and duotone reproductions.

Gerhard Richter is widely recognized as one of the most significant painters working today, and he is certainly among the most influential. He has worked in a wide range of media since the early 1960s, producing abstractions, landscapes, images derived from the mass media and from other photographs, and more. Seen together, these works call into question such widely held assumptions as the importance of stylistic consistency, individual artistic sensibility and spontaneous creativity. They also explore the impact of technology and media imagery on the traditional methods and formats of painting.

The Museum of Modern Art has published two important books on Richter, both written by Robert Storr: one covering forty years of his work, and published to accompany the Museum's large retrospective of his work in 2002, and one focusing on a single crucial series, October 18, 1977. This book brings together the essays and recent interviews from both of those books in a single volume.

Exhibitions

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Gerhard Richter. 40 Years of Painting at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, this publication represents a broad range of Gerhard Richter's paintings of the last 40 years.

 

Gerhard Richter's diverse body of work questions broadly held attitudes about the inherent importance of stylistic consistency for an artist. It ranges from photo-based pictures all across the board to gestural abstraction. The 'natural' evolution of individual artistic sensibility, the spontaneous component of creativity and the relationship of technological means and mass media imagery to traditional studio methods and formats. Richter has always kept his distance from revolutionaries and conservatives alike regarding what painting “should” be. This has resulted in what has been among the most convincing renewal of painting's vitality in late 20th- and early 21st-century art.

 

This publication consists of a critical essay by curator Robert Storr, a rare interview with the artist himself, a chronology, an exhibition history, and nearly 300 colour and duotone reproductions.

Gerhard Richter has been widely regarded as a publicity shy artist. However, the biography Gerhard Richter, Maler gives an insight into Richter’s personal history as well as into the development of his artistic œuvre.
Besides an evaluation of numerous letters and material from the Gerhard Richter archive, the book includes conversations with the artist as well as several of his contemporaries. Dietmar Elger, director of the Gerhard Richter Archive, describes Richter’s daily studio routine and his creative process. Thanks to detailed background information, this book contributes to an understanding of Richter’s art in connection with his life.

Exhibitions

The book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Gerhard Richter. Abstrakte Bilder at Museum Ludwig, Cologne and Haus der Kunst, Munich. The exhibitions were dedicated to Gerhard Richter’s abstract pictures, which form approximately one third of his œuvre.

However, this publication is not an overview of the development of his abstract works, but rather singles out selected large format works for discussion. These works, executed between 1986 and 2006, show a similar complexity that originates from a multitude of layers of paint.

Edited by Ulrich Wilmes, with text contributions by Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Beate Söntgen and Gregor Stemmrich.

This issue of the Patrimonia series was published on the occasion of the acquisition of the painting Portrait Dr. Knobloch of 1964 by Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden in 2009. The history of the painting’s origin, which was one of Gerhard Richter’s first commissioned portraits, is analysed in context of his other early portraits. The portraits after passport photos are highlighted especially and compared with portraits by Andy Warhol.

Text contribution by Dietmar Elger, director of the Gerhard Richter Archive Dresden.

Exhibitions

The book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Gerhard Richter. Abstrakte Bilder at Museum Ludwig, Cologne and Haus der Kunst, Munich. The exhibitions were dedicated to Gerhard Richter’s abstract pictures, which form approximately one third of his œuvre.

However, this publication is not an overview of the development of his abstract works, but rather singles out selected large format works for discussion. These works, executed between 1986 and 2006, show a similar complexity that originates from a multitude of layers of paint.

Edited by Ulrich Wilmes, with text contributions by Benjamin H. D. Buchloh, Beate Söntgen and Gregor Stemmrich.

At 864 pages, this monumental and comprehensive publication maps the ideas, processes, life and times of Gerhard Richter. Conceived and closely edited by Richter himself, Atlas cuts straight to the heart of the artist's work, collecting more than 5,000 photographs, drawings and sketches that he has compiled or created since the moment of his creative breakthrough in 1962. The images closely parallel, year by year, the subjects of Richter's paintings, revealing the orderly but open-ended analysis that has been so central to his art.
Offering invaluable insight into Richter's working process, this encyclopedic new edition - which completely revises and updates the rare, out-of-print 1997 edition and includes 147 additional plates - features 780 multi-image panels, each reproduced full page and in full colour.
