Joseph Beuys, Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke, Hanne Darboven, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Andreas Gursky, Thomas Ruff, Thomas Struth, and Martin Kippenberger. For these artists, representation, authenticity, and history are all fractured, problematic, and "de-natured." Their artworks—sometimes surprising, often challenging—established the international relevance and resonance of contemporary German art.
