This volume was published last month by Getty publications, edited by Christine Mehring, Jeanne Nugent, and Jon Seydl. It features my essay “Gerhard Richter’s Cold War Vision.”  It is available here.

From Getty Publications:
“The authors approach the context from a variety of angles including the social and political histories of a divided Germany, the conflicted development of Soviet Socialist Realism in East Germany, a Cold War visuality integrating pre- and post-resettlement works, the archival dimension of the artist’s output in relation to Richter’s Atlas, and the artist’s involvement in the representation of his work in archives, exhibitions, and catalogues. The essays began as papers delivered at a symposium held at the Getty Research Institute in 2007 in conjunction with the exhibition From Caspar David Friedrich to Gerhard Richter: German Paintings from Dresden at the J. Paul Getty Museum.”
