Located in the southwestern part of the country and bordered by both France and Switzerland, Kiefer’s childhood surroundings were lush and fresh but also peppered with wartime ruins.

It was perhaps these early experiences that primed Kiefer to think of history as a naturally occurring landscape, an uninterrupted plane of forest myths and modern warfare.
