Hans Richter

Nasce a Berlino nel 1888. Studia pittura a Berlino e all’Akademie di Weimar. Al termine della guerra, che lo vede impegnato fino al 1916, si trasferisce a Zurigo ed entra a far parte del movimento Dada. Pittore, regista, storico e teorico, è considerato tra i massimi esponenti dell’avanguardia storica, e uno tra i primi a indagare il rapporto tra pittura e cinema; tra gli anni ’20 e ’30 realizza diversi film sperimentali, pubblicitari o di carattere documentario, fino al lungometraggio Dreams that money can buy, realizzato negli Stati Uniti nel 1948 con la collaborazione di artisti tra cui M. Ray, F. Léger, M. Ernst e M. Duchamp, fondamentale pellicola del neosurrealismo cinematografico statunitense.
