Anselm Kiefer. Wege der Weltweisheit / Die Frauen der Revolution

Anselm Kiefer

In his early large-scale woodcut collages entitled Ways of Worldly Wisdom, Anselm Kiefer recapitulated history from an ironic and melodramatic perspective, while also exploring the modern tradition with all intensity. Along with Germany’s Spiritual Heroes, forming a kind of Walhalla of their own on the ground floor of the Richard Meier building, the Women of the Revolution will also be present: leaden beds bearing the names of famous French women and forging a connection with France, where Kiefer has lived and worked for many years. The exhibition will be enhanced with selected books on the same themes and accompanied by a catalogue.
