[34] Anselm Keifer

His works incorporate materials such as straw, ash, clay, lead, and shellac.

Kiefer argues with the past and addresses taboo and controversial issues from recent history. His works are characterised by a courageous willingness to confront his culture’s dark past, and unrealised potential, in works that are often done on a large, confrontational scale well suited to the subjects.
