Early paintings by Daniel Richter (*1962), one of the stars on the young German painting scene, describe a colorful, hallucinatory cosmos somewhere between graffiti and non-referential abstraction. A few years ago, the artist devoted himself entirely to figuration and history painting. By introducing a supposedly forgotten genre, Richter re-politicized painting as a medium under contemporary auspices, and at the same time linked to the art of the 1980s. Richter’s most recent works combine set pieces from art history, mass media, and pop culture to create his own worlds of visual narrative. This publication, conceived and designed with the help of the artist, presents selected works from the past five years, including Richter’s latest works.  Exhibition schedule: Kunstmuseum Basel, Museum für Gegenwartskunst, June 11–September 24, 2006
