On the occasion of his 90th birthday on February 9, 2022, the Kunstbibliothek in the Neue Nationalgalerie is showing Gerhard Richter's artist's books for the first time in a major survey exhibition. Why does such a successful artist make books? The tour of the exhibition explores this question. Gerhard Richter's first artist's book was produced in collaboration with Sigmar Polke as early as 1966. Since then, books have become indispensable for understanding his work and his self-image as an artist.
