The Richter Interviews collects conversations between Hans Ulrich Obrist and Gerhard Richter conducted over the course of more than two decades of discussion and collaboration. Subjects discussed range from Richter’s place within art history to artists’ books, architecture, religion, unrealized projects and his advice for young artists. This collection also includes a previously unpublished interview focused on Richter’s much-lauded window for Cologne Cathedral.

By Hans Ulrich Obrist

Obrist’s vast knowledge and interrogating mind, coupled with his longstanding friendship with Richter, make him a unique interlocutor for the artist, whose work spans more than 60 years and ranges from painting to photography, glass to printmaking, watercolors to books.

Illustrations of artworks discussed by Richter accompany the texts for visual reference—making this an indispensable guide to the thinking and creative processes of one of the world’s most admired artists.
