Record Player

1988 62 cm x 83 cm Catalogue Raisonné: 672-2

Oil on canvas

The painting centres on the record player of Andreas Baader, a leading member of the terrorist group Red Army Faction (RAF), that featured in his cell in the prison of Stuttgart-Stammheim and in which the gun was hidden that he used to shoot himself. Record player was painted using a police photograph taken within the context of securing the crime scene[1].

 

From above, the viewer looks onto the device standing off-centre in a corner on the ground. The player is encompassed by cables and a power strip and offers a free view to the record on top with its bright label visible through the transparent cover.

 

Record player is one of the paintings of October 18, 1977 concerned specifically with the personality of Andreas Baader and his personal belongings. Both Record player and Cell [CR: 670] are sometimes seen as portraying Baader as they both refer to his personality by means of his property and counterbalance the depictions of the dead Baader in Man Shot Down 1 and 2 [CR: 669/1-2][2]. However, the record player is not depicted as being in operation, the needle rests beside the record. The silence is thus expressed visually and points even more pointedly to the absence of the owner[3] and the falling silent of the historical reports[4]. Painting in this case visualises the lack of language and sound[5]. Although the traces of his life are still present in the possessions of the dead man, and as such are portrayable, the human itself has departed irretrievably[6].  

 

The record player in Baader’s prison cell evoked different connotations in the public awareness. On the one hand, it refers to the heated discussion about the conditions of detention of the imprisoned RAF members[7]. The detained terrorists were held in solitary confinement at first but had fought against this by going on a hunger strike that was well-covered by the media, attaining facilitations of imprisonment. These included concessions concerning the planning of their daily routine like the permission to go out to the prison courtyard and to talk privately between themselves as well personal amenities like books and music[8]. Especially the record player had become a symbol for the collective suicide of the RAF terrorists and the inability of the state to find a suitable way of dealing with the prisoners. In a hidden compartment in the shell of the record player Baader had hidden the gun he used to kill himself – both prove of how permeable the walls of the prison really were and a memento of death[9]. The device also points to the fact that electronic devices and especially the stereo equipment were converted into a radio system by the prisoners and used for unsupervised communication between the prison cells. This fact only became public knowledge after the deaths in Stammheim[10].

 

The original photograph was taken in colour, just like the source image for Cell [CR: 670], and it is possible to identify the record: Eric Clapton’s There’s One in Every Crowd from 1974[11]. Information like these are obscured in Richter’s painting because of the painterly treatment. The painting only pretends to be able to disclose details about Andreas Baader as a person while in reality only acting as a proxy for his personality, the arguments and conspiracy theories surrounding the case of Stammheim[12].

 

Richter doesn’t take sides in his cycle of works and he stresses that he was less interested in a detailed depiction of the events than a reconsideration of the issues: “What have I painted. […] – a silent, grey record player – […] I’m not so sure whether the pictures ‘ask’ anything; they provoke contradiction through their hopelessness and desolation, their lack of partisanship.“[13]

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

Designed by the artist himself, this publication gives a rare insight into one of the most intensive work periods (1995–1996) of Richter’s life.

 

It commences by introducing pictures, which having been kept in the artist’s studio had never been on view. Although mostly focussing on abstract works, an intimate cycle of eight photo paintings in a smaller format is also included: an autobiographic cycle depicting his third wife Sabine Moritz, a painter herself, and their first son Moritz in a Madonna-like pose.

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.

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.

Exhibitions

The catalogue was published to coincide with the exhibition Gerhard Richter: 4900 Colours at the Serpentine Gallery in London in 2008.

The work 4900 Colours [CR: 902] is the pictorial and transportable counterpart of the Cologne Cathedral Window [CR: 900] of 2007. Richter defined eleven different arrangements of the 4900 colour squares that form the piece. Version II, which divides the work into 49 separate pictures, was chosen for the Serpentine exhibition. The catalogue also introduces the other versions not exhibited at the Serpentine Gallery and includes an analysis of the principle of chance, which plays a distinctive role in Richter's œuvre and was used to arrange 4900 Colours.

With an introduction by Julia Peyton-Jones and Hans Ulrich Obrist and text contributions by Benjamin H. D. Buchloh, Peter Gidal and Birgit Pelzer.
