Anselm Kiefer à La Tourette

Regular price Regular price $60

This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Anselm Kiefer à La Tourette at Le Couvent Sainte-Marie de La Tourette, Éveux, France. In 1966 Kiefer spent a few weeks at La Tourette, the monastery designed by Le Corbusier, where he was inspired by the materiality of the architecture. Fifty-two years later he was invited to return to exhibit his work in dialogue with the spiritual place.

This book documents the installations, paintings, sculptures, and artist’s books that were on view, and includes a series of photographs of the monastery taken by the artist. The publication also features a foreword by Larry Gagosian, an essay by Brother Marc Chauveau, and a text by Kiefer originally written in 1966 following his stay.
