Richter Raum/リヒター・ラウム


2023年7月29日、軽井沢の森に「Richter Raum(リヒター・ラウム)」がオープンしました。






On 29th July 2023, “Richter Raum” opened in a forested area of Karuizawa.

Over the past 30 years, Wako Works of Art has been working with the German artist, Gerhard Richter. This summer, we are pleased to open a new space in Karuizawa, where works by Richter are permanently installed.

With the cooperation of the artist, the space has been partly modelled after Atelier Richter.

Barely an hour from Tokyo, in woods reminiscent of the leafy suburbs outside Cologne, it shall offer visitors an opportunity to experience the work and world of Gerhard Richter.

* As it is a small venue, reservation in advance will be required. Please reserve from here.
