This catalogue was published on the occation of the exhibtion Hello, I Love You at Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt am Main (DE), that showed Richter’s radical departure from his earlier style for the first time. In his new works Richter breaks with all that seemed familiar in his painting hitherto. In the past two years he has focused on a question which represents a challenge for him: “How can a picture be reduced formally while being charged at the same time as regards content?” In his search for answers and solutions Richter has developed a new pictorial language which defies the customary motifs and painting methods as well as the familiar colours and themes.
