Anselm Kiefer

This artwork was made by Anselm Kiefer in 2012 for an exhibition in Berlin. Afterwards it disappeared in a private collection and it will do the same after its visit in Antwerp. This is the only chance you have to see this work of art. Another reason to see it: it’s free!

Gutenberg

Die Buchstaben (The Letters) can be seen as an ode to Gutenberg and the printed book. The artwork includes a printing press and sunflowers. The seeds of the flowers fall on the ground en change into letters. It shows the power of the word.

Museum Plantin-Moretus

It also has a reference to Antwerp and to the Plantin Moretus Museum. In this museum you can admire the oldest printing presses in the world. The invention of book printing made it possible to print and spread information in very large amounts.
