About this title


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.


"A poetic and insightful book that’s a pleasure to read... lucid eloquence." -- Star Tribune, December 2005

"A thoughtful look at work that has searched a country’s – and a man’s – soul." -- Rocky Montain News, December 2005

"Auping’s work should be on the A-list when it comes to Kiefer." -- Choice, February 2006

"Presents a superb survey of the philosophical, political and spiritual underpinnings of this German giant’s work." -- Kansas City Star, December 2005

"The wonderfully detailed catalogue ... is an indispensable guide ... a triumph of art historical scholarship." -- H. Kramer, The New Criterion

"This catalog of more than 100 illustrations provides a fluent continuum of Kiefer’s ideas and imagery... Highly recommended." -- Library Journal, December 2005
