Keith Haring (1958-1990)

Folkwang Museum holds a largean exhibition of works by American artist Keith Haring.

The exposition contains more than 85 works, including large-format paintings and drawings, posters, photographs and videos that convey the entire spectrum of the author's work.

The painted figures and cult motifs of Keith Haring, such as dancing little men, barking dogs or flying saucers, circled the whole world. He was at the center of the legendary New York art scene of the 1980s: his unmistakably recognizable, spontaneous style emerged from the dynamics of time, which was shaped by underground club culture, space travel, robotics and video games. Haring has worked with artists such as Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat, as well as with Madonna, Grace Jones, Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren.
