Gerhard Richter's ongoing, encyclopedic "Atlas" project began in 1964, and now comprises more than 5,000 gridded photographs, diagrams, drawings and sketches. As an image archive, work tool and artist's book, "Atlas" sits at the very heart of Richter's practice, offering a massive summation of his masterful explorations of the tensions between photography and painting, history and memory, perception and representation. As a publication, "Atlas" has gone through numerous editions, each new volume expanding on the previous with elaborations of persistent themes. This book provides a critical tool for navigating "Atlas," bringing together Richter's own writings alongside commentaries by the art historians and curators Armin Zweite, Jean-Francois Chevrier, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Lynne Cooke and Helmut Friedel. Originally published in 2003 to coincide with the Whitechapel Gallery's exhibition "Gerhard Richter: Atlas," this updated edition also includes a review of the exhibition by Adrian Searle.Vom Verlag:
This book provides a critical tool for navigating Atlas, bringing together Richter's own writings alongside commentaries by an international range of curators, critics and art historians. Originally published in 2003 to coincide with the exhibition Gerhard Richter: Atlas at the Whitechapel Gallery, this new edition includes a review by Adrian Searle. Essays by Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Jean-Francois Chevrier, Lynne Cooke, Helmut Friedel, Armin Zweite and Adrian Searle. Lying at the heart of his practice is an ongoing project that commenced in 1964 and continues to this day. Atlas comprises over five thousand photographs, drawings, diagrams and proposals that are the foundation of Richter's oeuvre. Sometimes used as a source for his painting, Richter's album of pictures also demonstrates complex dialogues he explores between painting and photography, history and memory, perception and representation."
