‘I believe in nothing’



“Gerhard Richter is not a believer. In anything. ‘I believe in nothing’ is the most famous thing he has said, his equivalent of Warhol’s ‘I want to be a machine’ and belief that ‘everybody should be like everybody’. (‘I want to be like everyone else, think what everyone else thinks, do what is being done anyway’: Richter, ‘Notes’, 1964.)” - story
