New edition

Gerhard Richter’s artist's book Sils is named after the Swiss village of the same name, which he visited regularly for many years. Richter has approached the Sils landscape from various angles with a series of overpainted photographs. The photographs are mostly arranged as pairs, and are entitled Fextal, Piz Lunghi, Piz Surlej, Piz Corvatsch or Silsersee after different places within the region. Owing to the overpainting and their orientation – some of them are printed upside down – it is difficult to recognise the different locations.

The book was first published on the occasion of a Gerhard Richter exhibition at Nietzsche-Haus in Sils in 1992, and has been reprinted repeatedly since.

Edited by Hans Ulrich Obrist, with a text by Peter André Bloch.
