NOTEBOOKS, VOLUME 1, 1998-99. Anselm Kiefer. Seagull Books, London, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Chicago Press. 440 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9780857424006 In English.
Publisher's description: "For a long time, it was not clear if I would become a writer or an artist," says Anselm Kiefer, whose paintings and sculptures have made him one of the most significant and influential artists of our time. Since he was awarded the Peace Prize by the German Book Trade in 2008, his essays, speeches, and lectures have gradually received more attention, but until now his diary accounts have been almost completely unknown. The power in Kiefer's images, however, is rivaled by his writings on nature and history, literature and antiquity, and mysticism and mythology. The first volume of Notebooks spans the years 1998-1999 and traces the origins and creative process of Kiefer's visual works during this period. In this volume, Kiefer returns constantly to his touchstones: sixteenth-century alchemist Robert Fludd, German romantic poet Novalis, Martin Heidegger, Ingeborg Bachmann, Robert Musil, and many other writers and thinkers. The entries reveal the process by which his artworks are informed by his reading -- and vice versa -- and track the development of the works he created in the late 1990s.
