Daniel Richter / Huntergrund / Museum f. Gegenwartskunst Basel

The Museum für Gegenwartskunst Basel presents the first exhibition in Switzerland of the internationally renowned artist Daniel Richter. A selection of works from the past five years will be on view as well as his most recent paintings. “His painting shows a vehemence and ironic assertion that recalls the work of such artists as Albert Oehlen or Martin Kippenberger. In his most recent work, Richter weaves the set pieces of art history, the mass media and pop culture into atmospheric and uncanny worlds of his own making.” (PR M.f.G.). Curator: Philipp Kaiser. Daniel Richter is represented by Contemporary Fine Arts Berlin. Impressions from the opening reception at the Museum of Contemporary Art Basel and the concert on the occasion of the opening with the 3 Normal Beatles, at Erlkönig Restaurant Basel, Basel/Switzerland, June 10, 2006.
