At Art Cologne 2009 Galerie Eva Winkeler presented an installation by German artist Claus Richter. Claus Richter’s installation takes the visitor away from the art market to another place, a narrow lane with abandoned shop windows and vitrines, empty cookie tins and – rats!
Conny Kuilboer, Bernd Thiele and Claus Richter performed to the song “Put on a Happy Face” from the 1960s Musical “Bye Bye Birdie”, in a new interpretation by Claus Richter.
Claus Richter was born in Lippstadt, Germany in 1971. He lives and works in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
