The exhibition catalogue Gerhard Richter. Tapestries was published to accompany the eponymous exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery in London. The book presents four tapestries by Gerhard Richter on display at the exhibition, along with detailed images of these works.  


Francesco Bonami analyses the tapestries in his written contribution. He compares them to John Cage’s composition “Roaratorio”, which is a complex musical work involving multiple elements. He describes the tapestries as primordial, timeless and going beyond language.
