Never Look Away: Film Review

Movie review: Never Look Away. A deeply moving film about 30 years in the life of Gerhard Richter, including scenes of his childhood in Nazi Germany, viewing the Degenerate Art exhibition, early life and training in Eastern Germany, defection to the West, studying in Dusseldorf with Joseph Beuys, and first career successes. This powerful film questions why we make art, how we create empathy, and gives occasion to reflect on modern history and ideas. Strong but wonderful. Ten out of ten stars!

very entertaining read about “how one man’s con game created an international scandal and triggered a national FBI manhunt.”
