The Difficult Task of Art in the Technological Era. Gerhard Richter and Martin Heidegger’s transcendence without a transcendent

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this essay, I will explore the idea that Gerhard Richter’s work is consistent with what I refer to here as transcendence without a transcendent by Martin Heidegger. Furthermore, I will try to demonstrate how his use of painting is response to Heidegger’s criticism of Ge-stell and the technological era. In order to pursue these objectives, I will start with a detailed analysis of Richter’s work from the sixties to the present day.
