Analyzing the development of Kiefers art in terms of subjectivity, intersubjectivity, history, and technology, Matthew Biro demonstrates that the artists subjects reflect and transform the philosophers theoretical interests and intellectual development. The works of Kiefer and Heidegger, Biro argues, present a constellation of issues that unite German art and theory for most of the twentieth century. Showing the aesthetic relevance of the three stages of Heideggers philosophical thought to Kiefers work, this book also demonstrates the impact of Kiefers art works on contemporary art and theory.
