Keith Haring is regarded as a key figure in the New York art scene of the 1980s. Like almost no other artist, he managed to bridge the gap between the art scene and subculture, between a wide audience and experts. His works thrill with their accessibility, while addressing highly political topics such as homophobia, racism and the AIDS crisis. The genuinely open character of his works – one encounters them on poster spaces in the subway, on the walls of buildings, or in pop-up stores – and his political activism maintain an unbroken relevance to this day. Darren Pih, curator of the large Keith Haring retrospective at Tate Liverpool in 2019, presents this long-overlooked side of Keith Haring’s oeuvre.

CANCELED | Between identity politics and collective neurosis – Art and society from Andy Warhol to Damien Hirst
Since the 1960s many artists have addressed questions of identity in their works, with reference to skin color, sexual orientation or social class. They celebrate these identities, but also make discrimination visible. Together we look at artworks that focus on the theme of identity and contrast them with pieces that examine the desire for optimization and the collective neuroses of our performancGo to the event

Based on selected works from the 1960s to the present day, you can discover here how painting as a medium has not merely defended its position in art, but how it also picks up on and reflects on changes in image culture, from photography to television to social meGo to the event
