DUSSELDORF.- A surprise start to the exhibition program in the New Year will be a presentation of a selection of editions by Gerhard Richter in the Grabbehalle of the K20. Limited editions of print works, photos, and artist’s books have allowed this major artist to reach a wider public, while also providing him with a field of artistic experimentation. The exhibition will be open until March 9, 2014.

»I saw – and continue to see – editions as a welcome balance in relation to the production of one-of-a-kind paintings. They offer a marvelous opportunity for me to convey my works to a wider public.« --(Gerhard Richter, letter to the Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1998)

Gerhard Richter is one of the most eminent German artists of the present day. His paintings, sculptures, and installations are represented in numerous museums and private collections around the world. Alongside works in these genre, he has also produced editions, that is to say prints, photo editions, multiples, editions of paintings, artist’s books, and posters. Here we find artistic originals that are produced not as unique works, but instead in larger editions. Working in editions offers Richter the opportunity to make his works available to a larger public. At the same time, they allow him to explore the boundaries of the pictorial in an especially varied and experimental manner.

This selection of editions, most of them produced during the past ten years, are being loaned by the Olbricht Collection, which owns the most comprehensive collection of Gerhard Richter’s edition works worldwide. This exhibition marks the forthcoming appearance of a new catalog raisonné of Richter’s editions.
