Both the exhibition Out of Focus. After Gerhard Richter and this associated catalogue examine the stylistic device of blurring in contemporary art. Richter is a forerunner of this technique, and here his oeuvre is juxtaposed with the works of 23 other artists of later generations.

The contributors to the catalogue analyse the different elements of blurring that can be found in paintings over the centuries and blurring in photography; referring to optical procedures.
In order to trace the principles of blurring in contemporary art, the exhibition shows paintings as well as photographs from the artists. Amongst the German artists are Anna & Bernhard Blume, Wolfgang Ellenrieder, Adam Jankowski, Karin Kneffel and Franziskus Wendels.
The International artists include: Pablo Alonso, David Armstrong, Tamara K. E., Bill Jacobson, Peter Loewy, Qiu Shihua and Paul Winstanley.

Contributions by Hubertus Gaßner, Eckart Hoffmann, Berd Hüppauf, Sabine Schakenberg and Marc Wellmann.
