You do not want to miss Anselm Kiefer’s Il Mistero delle Cattedrali at the White Cube on Bermondsey Street till February 26th. The sheer scale of the paintings with their densely worked surfaces and objects (bricks, scales…) and his epic sculptures in heavy materials – wings tattered and weary – are overwhelming. Oppressive. But it’s a good kind of heaviness, a weighty, uncompromising engagement with Germany’s past. It’s not easy work in any sense. (There’s a helpful text guide to his references which reminds you that Kiefer expects the act of looking to be supplemented by the act of learning.) But it’s so rewarding.
