Podcast: Curator Kathleen Soriano on Kiefer’s iconography

Published 26 October 2014

How does artist Anselm Kiefer use mythology, history, literature, philosophy and science in his work? What meanings do lead, straw, fire, earth, and water hold for him?

  • Exhibition curator Kathleen Soriano uncovers the artist’s world and considers his oeuvre. Soriano explores the meanings behind Kiefer’s complex, layered yet sublime paintings, sculpture and installations in this discussion, originally held at the RA as part of our exhibition programme.
