Heavenly Palaces is a series of sculptures 26 works in glass display cabinets and one separate work that Anselm Kiefer created and installed in the late 1980s in a historic brick factory of the German Odenwald region. Poetic and extremely fragile works that seem to be almost transparent in the changing, reflecting lights of the space, these sculptures are made of photographs and fabric, glass fragments, clay, paper, bone, delicate card board and wooden structures. They make up a world that is understood only through its direct relations to cabbalistic representations, ancient myths, and Christian mysticism and gnosticism. This volume presents the series for the first time in color and black and white photographs taken by the editor.

Born in Germany in 1945, Anselm Kiefer is one of the most important artists of his generation. His works--encompassing and transcending painting, sculpture, photography, and installation--are epic in both scale and subject matter; in them, Kiefer wrestles with the darkness of German history, unearthing the taboos that underlie the collective past and interweaving them with Teutonic mythol­ogy, cosmology, and meditations on the nature of belief. This superbly designed volume, accompanying a major retrospective and including new works especially made for the exhibition, explores the themes that run through Kiefer's oeuvre, from the complex relationship between art and spirituality to the influence of German woodcuts and folklore.

Anselm Kiefer's Die Argonauten series was inspired by a casual dinner with friends. At the end of a meal, the artist noted the table's resemblance to a battlefield, and this quickly led him to delve into the Greek myth of Jason and the Argonauts. Despite the unlikely informality of the original prompt, Kiefer's choice to reinterpret the hero Jason's quest for the golden fleece continues central motifs in his work of violence, chauvinism and systems of power--derived, as ever, from the artist's assiduous study of poetry, mythology and cultural history. The project evolved into an installation composed of various totemic objects and weathered remnants, left over, so it appears, from Jason's quest. The third publication in Ivory Press' Liber artis series, Anselm Kiefer: Die Argonautenreproduces this ambitious series for the first time, along with a text by the artist.

Anselm Kiefer (b. 1945) is one of the most important and controversial artists at work in the world today. Through such diverse mediums as painting, photography, artists books, installations and sculpture, he has interpreted the great political and cultural issues at the heart of the modern European sensibility: the connections among memory, history and mythology; war; the Holocaust; and ethnic and national identity. In this extensively illustrated volume, available again in a new, compact format, Arasse analyses Kiefers education, influences, philosophy and art, while demonstrating the unity and continuity of his work. Arasse takes as his starting point the 1980 Venice Biennale, a key moment in the artists career that marked the birth of both his international reputation and the controversy over the Germanness of his work. Organized both chronologically and according to the artists recurrent motifs, the books approximately 250 full-colour images trace Kiefers creative evolution, and present his great themes in their full scope and power.

Unlike almost any other contemporary German artist, Anselm Kiefer (born 1945) has rendered the horrors of recent history and created profound works of art with mythological, religious and philosophical themes, in subtle layers that alternately cover as well as uncover one another—that contain the knowledge of the inevitable transformation and dissolution of all matter, at once monumental and material-related. These fundamental elements also inform his woodcuts. This catalogue, accompanying the retrospective of the same name at the Albertina, Vienna, deals with these for the first time. More than 35 major works comprise the most important cycles and thematic groups and demonstrate their variety, from the earliest works in traditional book format and the fascinating large-format works titled Brunhilde: Grane, to the Ways of Worldly Wisdom: Arminius’s Battleand the Rhinewoodcuts.

Le Grand Palais est un lieu de lumière, de verre où l'espace ne cesse de vivre et de raisonner. Le Grand Palais est une architecture qui invite à penser la dimension de l'air et du cosmos que nous habitons. Le Grand Palais est un lieu unique au monde. C'est pour cela qu'il est aujourd'hui proposé à un créateur pour une expérience totalement Inédite qui n'a lieu qu'une fois dans la vie d'un artiste : cette expérience nous l'avons nommée MONUMENTA. A l'initiative du ministère de la Culture et de la Communication (Délégation aux Arts Plastiques) avec le Centre National des Arts Plastiques et la Réunion des Musées Nationaux, MONUMENTA est une manifestation qui a pour vocation de faire vivre à tous cette confrontation, ce dialogue entre l'œuvre des plus grands créateurs de notre temps, vivant en France ou à l'étranger, et cette étonnante architecture dont ils prennent possession. Premier artiste à relever le défi de MONUMENTA, Anselm Kiefet né en 1945, vit en France depuis plus de douze ans où Il a créé parmi ses plus belles oeuvres. Au Grand Palais, il propose une dramaturgie picturale puissante, dans laquelle images et matières se conjuguent pour créer une réelle intensité émotionnelle et esthétique. Dans sa peinture comme dans ses sculptures, Anselm Kiefer explore les expériences essentielles de l'existence humaine. II confronte l'homme aux grandes forces historiques et mythologiques et il évoque les traumatismes de l'histoire européenne contemporaine pour interroger la nature de notre relation à l'espace, au langage et au monde. Cette exposition internationale et ambitieuse s'élève à la hauteur des plus grands rendez-vous de l'art actuel sur ta scène mondiale, et s'adresse à un large public, grâce à une politique de médiation culturelle volontaire et innovante dont cet album est l'un des principaux instruments.

Anselm Kiefer is one of the most interesting - if controversial - artists in the world today. For years, he has probed both the myths and events that have shaped German history, and has offered, through his majestic paintings and lyrical artist's books, his thought-provoking insights into their relationship and significance. In Anselm Kiefer: The Psychology of "After the Catastrophe", Rafael Lopez-Pedraza presents a carefully woven and challenging new reflection on Kiefer's art, addressing the central issues of myth and history in Kiefer's work through the perspective of C.G. Jung's work, and in particular Jung's essay "After the Catastrophe". Lopez-Pedraza unfolds the nature of Kiefer's complex creativity, demonstrating how depth psychology may help us to better understand Kiefer's art and ideas. To illustrate his argument, Lopez-Pedraza uses a variety of images from Kiefer's richly productive career of over three decades, thus providing a comprehensive overview of Kiefer's entire creative expression.

Danièle Cohn, who has worked alongside Anselm Kiefer for many years, explains the central role the artist's studios play in his artistic process. To enter a painter's atelier is a rare privilege and the stuff of dreams, as if access to this intimate place were the key to the very act of creation. Entering an atelier allows us to see, in situ, the creative process in action, in the present; we are admitted into the space and virtually participate in the artistic act by our very presence, rather than simply observing from the outside. In this monograph, Danièle Cohn reveals how Anselm Kiefer's ateliers--and his organization and spatial distribution of them--are essential to his artistic activity as a painter and sculptor. While they serve as production areas and storage spaces, artists' studios are also physical representations of the mind and memory of an artist, where living and working spaces combine. This book takes the reader on an exploration through Kiefer's various ateliers and examines the crucial role they have in the creation of his works. From the attic of a former school or a disused brickyard in Germany, via an atelier in the rural surroundings in the south of France or the urban setting of the Marais in Paris, to his current studio on the outskirts of the French capital, we discover how Anselm Kiefer's work spaces have impacted his art.

In 1974 Anselm Kiefer produced Erotik im Fernen Osten oder: Transition from Cool to Warm, a book of watercolors. Thirty years later, Gagosian Gallery's newest catalogue marks Kiefer's return to the medium, with works made between 2012 and 2015. More than forty unique artists's books, their pages painted with gesso to mimic marble, can be found in the exciting new tome. Artists's books are an integral part of Kiefer's oeuvre; over time they have ranged in scale from the intimate to the monumental, and in materials, from lead to dried plant matter. In this selection of books, the sequences of narrative information and visual effect evoke the fragile endurance of the sacred and the spiritual through the female figures on the marbled pages.
