Description

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 | The dark side of Pop Art

The Pop Art artists, especially Andy Warhol, glorified the icons of pop culture and were the first to show consumer goods and the products of the mass media in art. At the same time, their works also addressed the downside of capitalism and consumer culture, such as the obsession with superficialities. The tour shows how Pop Art could become, at one and the same time, a phenomenon of both mass cul

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 performanc

CANCELED | Long live painting! Painting from the 1960s to today

The death of painting has been declared at regular intervals ever since the invention of photography, its significance deemed obsolete. 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 me
