Painter Anselm Kiefer's focus is history, time and collective memory, particularly the dark past of German history and the influences of Fascism, Nazism and mythology.
His works include monumental paintings, installations, works on paper, artist books, and altered photographs, and can incorporate physical elements like lead, concrete, glass, textiles, tree roots and burned books. Wim Wenders recently completed a 3D film on Anselm Kiefer, which was shown at special screenings at the Cannes Film Festival.
