Coinciding with the 59th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, MUVE Contemporaneo presents a monumental installation by the German artist Anselm Kiefer at the Palazzo Ducale in Venice, Italy. Anselm Kiefer created the series of huge paintings specifically for the Sala dello Scrutinio in the Doge’s Palace in 2020 and 2021. The exhibition is curated by Gabriella Belli and Janne Sirén and is the centerpiece of the fifth edition of MUVE Contemporaneo, the biennale organized by the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia. The title of Anselm Kiefer’s show is from the writings of the Venetian philosopher Andrea Emo: Questi scritti, quando verranno bruciati, daranno finalmente un po’ di luce (These writings, when burned, will finally cast a little light). The exhibition runs until October 29, 2022.
