One of my favourite artists of all time, Gerhard Richter, will celebrate his 80th birthday early next year with a major retrospective at London’s Tate Modern spanning five decades of his varied work. To coincide with the event, filmmaker Corinna Belz brings us a documentary which shows the german artists notoriously secretive creative process. Watch some of the film below, courtesy of Nowness.
