Who is Anselm Kiefer

Born in 1945 in Donaueschingen, Germany, Anselm Kiefer is one of today’s most important and versatile artists. His artistic practice encompasses various media, including painting, sculpture, photography, installations, and architecture.

With his early works, he addressed the history of the Third Reich and grappled with post-war German identity. The mid-1990s marked a shift in his work–travels to India, Asia, America, and North Africa inspired an interest in the exchange of ideas between the Eastern and Western worlds.

An avid reader, Kiefer enriches his works with literary and poetic references.

Until 21 July 2024
