About the Class

How might we approach the work of the postwar German artist Anselm Kiefer? 

Animated by pieces in the Kiefer Rodin exhibition and anchored by an immersion in the artist’s ranging sources and subjects, this seminar will equip participants to engage Kiefer’s work in all its aesthetic, historical, philosophical, and material complexity.
