Following on from the previous post (https://bit.ly/2LnlrHi) about Gerhard Richter's newspaper take over I wanted to find the original. I was interested to see that it is now not only a newspaper but is listed in a gallery setting as an edition work of art. This piece of mass media art surely is or certainly was in many house holds after October 5th when it was released.
