Galerie Yvon Lambert is showing “Unfruchtbare Landschaften” (“Infertile Landscapes”), a selection of artists’ books made by celebrated German artist Anselm Kiefer, who lives and works in France. Made early in his career, the books include a series of tributes to Jean Genet, a poet whose work haunted this most literary of artists and caused a scandal in Germany in 1969 with their images of the artist giving the Nazi salute (while wearing a crocheted patchwork skirt). Another, entitled “Martin Heidegger,” portrays the Nazi-sympathizing philosopher as a diseased brain. 108, rue Vieille-du-Temple, 75003 Paris. Tel.: 01 42 71 09 33. Through June 26.
