Lesley Chamberlain on Anselm Kiefer.
Kiefer’s fascination is with the way materiality deteriorates. A Heideggerian-Borgesian masterwork is his installation of lead books on lead shelves, which shows them falling out of their bindings, slumping in disorder. Perhaps this work takes literally Derrida’s assertion that the Logos, the Word of God and of Truth, that used to guide Western civilization, has collapsed.
