ANSELM KIEFER: A MONOGRAPH. Translation of Anselm Kiefer: Entre mythe et concept (Editions du Regard, Paris, 2015). Dominique Baque. Thames and Hudson Ltd, London, 2015. Published in the U.S.A. by Thames and Hudson Inc., New York, 2016. 304 pp. with 263 ills. (215 col.). 32 x 26 cm. LC 2015-943654 ISBN 9780500093993 In English.
Publisher's description: This new monograph will examine the foundation of Kiefer's work: memory and our response to it. Kiefer's artistic perspective is informed in turn by great literary works, myths, tales, legends, and particularly the world of Kabbalistic mysticism. This unprecedented monograph explores his passion for alchemy, his admiration for great female figures obscured by history, and his relationship with the landscape and nature, a notable topic of his most recent works. Art historian Dominique Baque also highlights an aspect of Kiefer's work that has received little critical attention -- his conceptual understanding of the book and photography. In fact, Kiefer mixes many forms and media, and Baque expands this study with a discussion of the often-overlooked performance element of his work, starting with his first actions from the end of the 1960s.
