about this item
Modern civilization would be inconceivable without letters. The printed word, made out of letters strung together to form sentences and scripture, has very much shaped our existence. Anselm Kiefer’s work Die Buchstaben, which is being portrayed in this volume, is all about the power of the word. Impressive images such as sunflowers growing out of a printing machine and rolls of film and letters scattered across the floor come together to form a complex and poetic installation.
