Look! at the big bad Germans at the PMA



In episode 15 of our video series Look! It’s Libby and Roberta, we brood a little with those post World War II German titans Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke and Anslem Kiefer. The three are showing in Notations part III, the last in a series of exhibitions at the Philadelphia Museum of Art that explore issues of contemporary art making and ideas. Curator of Contemporary Art Carlos Basualdo carries us beyond the U.S. border with his choices at the same time that he displays the significance of the PMA’s collection.

We can never thank our video hero, David Kessler, too many times, so thanks David for making these videos. Here’s a post from earlier this week on his recent fame. We hope fortune will follow, because he deserves it. Meanwhile, we count ourselves lucky.
