For the first time since the 1980s Berlin pays tribute to Hans Richter (1888-1976) whose artistic career spanned almost seven decades.
Richter was a predominantly a painter and draughtsman whose oeuvre incorporated movements from Dadaism to Constructivism, and he was also a film maker and theoretician. Exhibition organisers describe Richter as being a multimedia artist before the term was even invented.
The exhibition includes over 140 works, including his films, as well as roughly 50 works by artists influenced by Richter. The link between film and art was the central theme for the artist whose work was shown in the notorious Nazi exhibition Degenerate Art in 1937.
