Centre Pompidou-Metz presents the first major retrospective in France of the drawings, paintings and films of Hans Richter (1888–1976).
Hans Richter. The Crossing of the Century traces more than fifty years in the artist’s career and collaborative practice, and includes works by Jean Arp, Theo van Doesburg, Marcel Duchamp, Viking Eggeling, Max Ernst, Marcel Janco, Fernand Léger, Kazimir Malevich, Man Ray, Gerrit Rietveld, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Tristan Tzara. Richter’s path shapes and tells by itself an art history of the twentieth-century in its social, political and formal dimensions. Alongside major avant-garde works of the twentieth century, the exhibition shows a vast body of documents such as photographs, books and journals.
