About the Work

The people confronting the viewer in Daniel Richter’s ‘Horde’ are larger than life. The fragmentary representation of their bodies and faces only makes their presence stronger. In this ambivalence lies the quality of the work. It is as if the outer layer of the figures has been removed, revealing their inner life, hatred and aggression. The actual identity of the horde is unimportant. What is essential is the hostile manner in which its members confront the viewer. What gives the work its political dimension is the way in which it opens up to the exhibition space.

Kunst nach 1945: Daniel Richter
Im Rahmen der Städel-Filmreihe "Kunst nach 1945" stellt Daniel Richter (geboren 1962 in Eutin) sein Werk „Horde" im Städel Museum vor, das 2007 entstand. Inwiefern hat Richters Studium der Malerei an der Hamburger Hochschule für bildende Künste bei Werner Büttner sein Kunstverständnis geprägt? Wie ist Richters "Horde" entstanden und welche Gedanken stehen hinter diesem, von Richter wiederholt verwendeten Bildmotiv? Diese und weitere Fragen beantwortet der Künstler im Film. http://www.staedelmuseum.de/#youtube
