Introduced by: Annike Kross

An active member of the expressionist movement that emerged in the early twentieth century, Hans Richter became involved in the radical expressionist group Brücke in Dresden and Der Blaue Reiter in Munich, led by artists such as Wasilly Kandinsky, Franz Marc, and Paul Klee. Like most artists of the time, Richter also served in the world war and shortly came back due to a serious injury. In Berlin, he met the forerunner of Dadaist movement Tristan Tzara. Just as Kandinsky and Klee sought ways to create music-like sensations visually with painting, Richter experimented with changing rhythms of editing and visual music. This gave birth to an abstract cinema that denies storytelling. For Richter, what made cinema special among other arts was editing. Through editing, it was possible to create rhythm, which would induce the visual shock element praised by Dada. Editing could dissect, disrupt, and diminish stories. Richter’s films are the most powerful embodiments of Dadaist aesthetics.
