(Corinna Belz, 2011, Germany, 97 min)
With special guest introduction by the Henry’s own Sara Krajewski at the Friday 3/23 7pm show!
Gerhard Richter, one of the most significant contemporary artists of our times, granted filmmaker Corinna Belz access to his studio in the spring and summer of 2009 as he worked on a series of large abstract paintings. Gerhard Richter Painting offers rare insights into the artist’s process with a quiet, fly-on-the-wall perspective. The paintings themselves become the protagonists. Gerhard Richter Painting is the penetrating portrait of an artist at work—and a fascinating film about the art of seeing.
