Anselm Kiefer/Paul Celan: Myth, Mourning and Memory

Anselm Kiefer/Paul Celan: Myth, Mourning and Memory
Library Shelf Location 18.KIEF
Publication Date Apr 2007
Description Anselm Kiefer has explored the crisis of representation after Nazism and the Holocaust more than any other contemporary artist, and his work has been heavily influenced by the poetry of Paul Celan, the Romanian poet. In Celan's poems, Kiefer found the model for an 'ethical grief', where Nazi ties were deconstructed, and where emotion was not simply brushed aside. This book traces Anselm Kiefer's use of themes from 20th-century German history, and shows how the poet Paul Celan's writings have haunted his work for over twenty-five years - an alliance that was recently cemented by Kiefer when he dedicated a series of works to the poet.
