Hans Richter

28 01 2010

I’ve just come across German Avant-Garde artist, Hans Richter (1888-1976). His film work with Viking Eggeling is of particular interest to me as his cinematic experimentations with sound and fragmented plains hold relevance in my own practice. To date, these are the earliest examples of this kind of work that I can find (1920s) and it is useful when contextualizing my visual aesthetic historiographically.
