When Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat Took the 1980s NYC Art Scene by Storm

Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat took the art scene of the 1980s by storm: first New York, then Europe, ultimately Japan and the rest of the world. In their works, saturated with signs, figures and words, the age found its symbols. But even 30 years after their all-too-early deaths, their postmodern, political line is stronger than ever. As predecessors of the copy-and-paste internet and post-internet society, they resonate with today’s youth culture. Their art inspires the very youngest as well as millennials and the generations before that. With their collaged spaces of knowledge, Basquiat’s works today command higher prices than the work of any other American artist, while Haring, with his image-words, could be seen to have contributed to the founding of our “emoji culture,” in which symbols have become a universal language.
