Hans Richter & Marcel Duchamp

The German modernist, Hans Richter, was born in Berlin in 1888. A painter, graphic artist, avant-gardist, film-experimenter and producer, Richter was one of the original visionaries of Dada. He studied art at the Academy of Art in Berlin, the Academy of Art in Weimar, and for a short period in Paris, and later taught at the Film Institute of City College in New York after being forced to leave Germany due to his involvement in the Association of Revolutionary Artists. Hans Richter died in 1976.
