Author(s): Daniele Cohn
In this superbly illustrated volume, Daniele Cohn, who has worked alongside Anselm Kiefer for many years, explains the central role the artists studios play in his artistic process. She reveals how Kiefer's ateliers their layout and organization, and their location are intrinsic to his work as a painter and sculptor. The reader is taken on an exploration of Kiefer's ateliers around the world, from the attic of a former school and a disused brickyard in Germany, via ateliers in the rural south of France and the urban setting of the Marais in Paris, to his current studio in Croissy-Beaubourg on the outskirts of the capital. Throughout, we discover how Anselm Kiefer's work spaces have influenced his art.
