Anselm Kiefer

LaM





Connu et reconnu internationalement pour ses pièces monumentales et son travail sur la mémoire européenne, il présentera au LaM plus de cent-trente œuvres témoignant de sa pratique de la photographie et de la question de la révélation de l'image, essentielles dans son œuvre, mais peu abordées dans le cadre d'expositions. 

Generally, Kiefer attributes traditional mythology, books, and libraries as his main subjects and sources of inspiration. In his middle years, his inspiration came from literary figures, namely Paul Celan and Ingeborg Bachmann. His later works incorporate themes from Judeo-Christian, ancient Egyptian, and Oriental cultures, which he combines with other motifs. Cosmogony is also a large focus in his works. In all, Kiefer searches for the meaning of existence and "representation of the incomprehensible and the non-representational."
