Gods, Heroes, Criminals
Wagner project by Christoph Kiefhaber

Love and the willingness to make sacrifices are juxtaposed with betrayal and the lust for power. These perpetual themes of the medieval Poetic Edda, the Nibelung saga and naturally Richard Wagner's tetralogy have all served as an inspiration for these works by the visual artist Christoph Kiefhaber. Parallels to today's world are striking.

The core of Kiefhaber's Richard Wagner project comprises four paintings: Die Otterbusse; Der Ring des Nibelungen; Der Ringvergleich and Götterdämmerung. Studies and works on paper from 1988 to 2013 complement this tetralogy.
