This work contains 69 different details of the surface of one abstract painting, photographed head-on. At first glance the fragmented topography suggests that Richter followed a specific plan, but the search for fixed coordinates or a sequence of the details leads nowhere. Each fragment almost fills the entire page, followed by a blank page, lending order to disorder.
