RAF – From the criminalistic search to the artistic
The so-called “Deutscher Herbst” was forty years ago, and it has since been measured more than thoroughly. The high and low point of the RAF terror in September / October 1977 has also been worked on in numerous artistic and political debates, in feature and documentary films, on paintings by Gerhard Richter, self-explanatory experiments such as the illustrated book “Hansel and Gretel” by Astrid Proll. At the Biennale for current photography in Heidelberg, Ludwigshafen and Mannheim, the Berlin photographer and archaeologist Arwed Messmer ventures on the mined terrain of the RAF.
