Anselm Kiefer (*1945 in Donaueschingen, lives and works in Paris) is one of the most important artists of our era. And the ALBERTINA Museum is mounting a first comprehensive retrospective that includes over 35 monumental masterpieces from his famous woodcuts along with important pictorial series and thematic groups such as Ways of Worldly Wisdom: The Battle of Hermann, The Rhine and Brünhilde – Grane.
Kiefer’s oeuvre bears witness to his intense interest in German history, cultural history, and mythologies. An individual approach to collage, numerous painterly reworkings, and experimental materials and techniques make each of his works a unique statement that stands on its own while still remaining networked on multiple levels with Kiefer’s pictorial worlds in terms of both content and form.
