This long-awaited solo exhibition features German artist Gerhard Richter, one of the greatest artists of our age. In 2022, Richter has turned 90 years old and this exhibition will trace his practices over the last 60 years, showcasing about 110 works.
Using a variety of materials such as oil paintings, photographs, digital prints, glass, and mirrors Richter attempts to affect the viewer not only through optical perception, but also through perceptions of the history of art, contemporary visual culture, the history of 20th century Germany, the memories of the artist himself and his family, and audiences’ desire to see things.  The exhibit showcases a variety of his past works, including his piece de resistance, a series of four large paintings containing hidden photo images taken by Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp prisoners.
