9780876330715: Anselm Kiefer

Anselm Kiefer creates works of art that invoke recent historical lessons in tragedy and human folly for a generation that might prefer to ignore the past. Visually overwhelming and sublime in scale, Kiefer's work sits at the juncture of historical confrontation and allegorical redemption. A collaborative endeavor between Derneberg Publications, the Hall Collection and MASS MoCA, Sculpture and Painting presents a selection of works from the Fairfield, Connecticut-based Hall Collection, and spans the past three decades of Kiefer's practice. It includes 14 individual plates, installation views of MASS MoCA's exhibition and comprehensive details of the works. A foreword by Joseph Thompson, Director of MASS MoCA, presents Kiefer's work as both passionate and cautionary, while art historian Mark Rosenthal's essay likens Kiefer's works to the labors of a war poet, simultaneously despairing and demanding.
