ART HISTORIAN MATTHEW BIRO
The Fourfold: Anselm Kiefer and Global Identity
 
 
 
 
Matthew Biro will discuss Anselm Kiefer's monumental painting, Das Geviert, 1997, in light of the artist's broader project of exploring representation and identity.  Particular attention will be paid to Kiefer's move to a more global understanding of human identity in his art beginning in the 1990s. An expert in twentieth-century art and philosophy, Matthew Biro is a professor and chair in the department of the history of art at the University of Michigan.
