Gerhard Richter, Funeral (1988)
This largest painting of the cycle is of the massive funeral of Andreas Baader, Gudrun Ensslin, and Jan-Carl Raspe in a Stuttgart cemetery a week after their deaths in Stammheim prison in 1977. Ensslin’s father had struggled to find a cemetery that would allow him to bury his daughter. Manfred Rommel, the popular mayor of Stuttgart (and son of war hero Irwin Rommel), unilaterally decided that the terrorists must be allowed to be buried in a Stuttgart cemetery. “After death, all enmity must cease,” said Rommel.

No! NO!!!! Don’t make him real like this… No… The black&white keeps him abstract, and on a pedestal; that way he can be a god in my pantheon. I don’t want to see him as a human like this, it’s a disgrace. Burn this photograph. No… immanence is too much, I don’t know how you Christians do it. *vomits*
