Baader Meinhof | Pictures On The Run 66–77 by Astrid Proll is a book of pictures from ten crucial years of German post-war history - beginning with the death of the student Benno Ohnesorg on June 2nd, 1967, in Berlin, through to the murder of the President of the Employers' Association, Hanns-Martin Schleyer, on October 18th, 1977. The story of the Red Army Faction (R.A.F.) is also a story of the images that the group has staged, invoked and left behind: Ulrike Meinhof's warrant; the emblem with the red star and the Kalashnikov; the arrest of Holger Meins; the high security wing in Stuttgart-Stammheim prison; the videotapes with the kidnapped Hanns-Martin Schleyer; the photograph of the dead Andreas Baader. "Six against sixty million" – why is it that this war still occupies our minds, or the artistic creation, incorporated in the famous paintings by Gerhard Richter about the R.A.F., now at MOMA, New York? Repercussions can still be observed to this day. Published by Scalo, 1998.
