Gerhard Richter at Tate Modern
Through this video, art critic Adrian Searle takes us through the galleries at London’s TATE Modern showing the viewer the mysterious paintings of German artist Gerhard Richter, whose work deals with subjects as diverse as photorealistic family portraits to a blurred vision of September 11. This overview of his works exhibited at the museum was prior to his major retrospective exhibition at Tate titled: Gerhard Richter: Panorama.

Gerhard Richter was one of the first German artists to reflect on the history of National Socialism, creating paintings of family members, as well as victims of, the Nazi party. Continuing his historical interest, he produced the 15-part work October 18, 1977. 1988, a sequence of black and white paintings based on images of the Baader Meinhof group. Richter has continued to respond to significant moments in history throughout his career;  September 2005, a painting of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York in 2001
