For over fif­ty years, Ger­hard Richter has worked on a daz­zling re­ne­w­al of paint­ing. The wide-rang­ing oeu­vre of­per­haps the most fa­mous artist of our time pre­sents a fas­ci­nat­ing ten­sion be­tween fig­u­ra­tion and ab­s­trac­tion, sig­ni­f­i­can­ceand ba­nal­i­ty. Since the late 1970s, ab­s­tract pic­tures have­dom­i­nat­ed Richter’s work.This ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures new paint­in­gs cre­at­ed in 2016. Along­side the ex­hi­bi­tion, pi­oneer­ing works by Ger­hard Richter­from the col­lec­tion of the Mu­se­um Lud­wig will be pre­sent­ed in the per­ma­nent ex­hi­bi­tion.
