Coinciding with dOCUMENTA 13 in Kassel, the Art and Exhibition Hall in Bonn is presenting key works by Anselm Kiefer (b. 1945) from the Grothe Collection. Staged across 2000 square metres of gallery space, Am Anfang (In the Beginning) is the first exhibition devoted to this substantial body of works by the celebrated German artist. The selection, complemented by recent acquisitions and sculptural pieces, reaffirms the uniqueness of Kiefer’s oeuvre.
Anselm Kiefer is one of the most important international artists of our time. Over the course of his career he has created a complex, labyrinthine cosmos of his own, which allows him to address existential questions about the nature of myths, Christianity, Jewish mysticism, history, nature (including nuclear energy), music, and literature, and to develop pictorial strategies of outstanding aesthetic quality.
