Presenting highlights from the breadth of Anselm Kiefer’s (born 1945) career to date, Memorabilia looks at themes of remembrance, loss, historical evocation and reference to mythology in the artist’s oeuvre. Kiefer is a modernist in his tendency to freight his paintings and bookworks with allusions that demand literacy and active explication on the viewer’s part; as author Dieter Ronte puts it, “Kiefer is both an enlightener and a poet ... he requires education and the willingness to learn and experience new things with him.” Memorabilia thus goes to the emotional and intellectual heart of the artist’s work. Published for an exhibition at the Museum Ludwig (based on the collection of Peter and Irene Ludwig), this themed Kiefer overview includes 100 color reproductions.
