The Easel

Anselm Kiefer @ Pompidou Centre

Kiefer’s art is concerned with big themes – notably time and the memory of German history. Over a long and hugely successful career, he has developed a dense visual language that is both eloquent and difficult. One reviewer commented “There are some people whose creativity verges on the demonic and he is one of them.” An excellent background video on the artist (15 min) is here.
