Vija Celmins | Gerhard Richter

Double Vision

This publication brings together for the first time the work of Vija Celmins and Gerhard Richter, who live in New York and Cologne respectively, in a transatlantic dialogue that reveals surprising connections.

In addition to thematic similarities and the fact that both have worked with photographic models throughout their careers, Celmins and Richter have a shared interest in the most elementary conditions of representation.

What is reality? What is representation? And how can perception, seeing itself, be made visible?

Published on occasion of the exhibition ‘Vija Celmins | Gerhard Richter: Double Vision’ 12 May – 27 Aug 2023, Hamburger Kunsthalle, Germany.
