Anselm Kiefer

by

German artist Anselm Kiefer is one of the most important and controversial artists of the post-world war II art scene. Begining with the work he showed at the 1980 Venice Biennale, he has interpreted the great political and cultural issues at the heart of the modern European sensibility, through media as diverse as painting, photography, artist's books, installations, and sculpture. Kiefer's wildly expressive work receives all the space and fluent interpretation it demands in this superb high-quality production. The book's approximately 300 full-color images trace Kiefer's creative evolution and present his great themes in their full scope and power. The author interprets Kiefer's art as a site where distinctions between modern and postmodern senses of representation, history, cosmology, and nature become thematic. He addresses individual works and gives the historical, biographical, art-critical, and philosophical setting for each. Hide synopsis
