Catalogue Note

"Kiefer’s art is the unique expression of a highly personal situation prompted by his interests and consciousness and yielding images in which historic awareness, metaphysical longings and the notion of human subordinacy to Existence constitute the material of the predominating question: how to render this human experience into Image."
Wim Beeren
'Anselm Kiefer: Recuperation of History', in: Exh. Cat., Amsterdam, Stedelijk Museum, Anselm Kiefer, 1987, p. 8
