Led by maverick art historian, and Context favorite, Sabry Amroussi, this talk will compare both artists, telling each of their compelling life stories, and taking you through the complicated history of Twentieth Century Germany and how that impacted both men. From the gigantic installations of Kiefer to the famous "upside down" works of Baselitz, viewers will come away with a better understanding of the two giants of modern art, as well as German Contemporary art as a whole.
