Where form meets function

Following up her 2007 short film Gerhard Richter’s Window, filmmaker Corinna Bolz once again managed to get one of the most famous and prolific artist alive in front of her camera for her new documentary Gerhard Richter Painting. It features intimate conversations with the artist, as well as his critics, companions and his American gallerist Marian Goodman, giving a profound insight into the rather media shy artists life and creative work. Watch Gerhard Richter painting canvases and sharing some thoughts on art in the trailer above.
