ANSELM KIEFER: SHEVIRAT HA-KELIM

[Breaking of the Vessels]

The exhibition, prepared especially for the opening
of the Herta and Paul Amir Building, focuses on
German artist Anselm Kiefer's interest in Jewish
tradition and in faith, mysticism, mythology and
literature. Since the 1970s, Kiefer has dealt with
Germany's history and culture, with WWII and its
aftermath, in a painful, difficult but sober and
deeply intensive dialogue with the past. His works
reflect a fascinating ability to express a personalcultural
conflict.
The exhibition was conceived by the late
Mordechai Omer together with the artist.
