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."
