With Anselm Kiefer now moving past 70 years old he seem to be even more consumed with time and the constant destruction and renewal of life itself. His production and energy seem to be at all time peak given what this wonderful video by Art Documentaries gives us. Not only do we get to finally see his incredible studios but also his humor, generosity and the power of what one can do with vast amounts of money coupled with extraordinary lines of thinking.
Here is a man who’s thoughts were once translated in paint, lead and straw are now expressed in his grand palace’s of the mind. Every artist who thinks they are an artist should view this film and start all over from the beginning – or just give up – as there is no one I can think of doing work on this scale of shear magnitude, raw talent and intellect.
