Faceless figures – without reference to gender, race, religion or sexual orientation. Different, but equal beings. They all celebrate life, in which they contribute as individuals to the whole. Haring's humorous iconography reflects the euphoria and oppression, fear and hope of life. Emotions that could not be more actual than ever.
Whether Haring expressed himself in his street art on sex, racism, religion or diseases, the artist stimulated dialogue and often controversy. Even though he died in 1990, he is up-to-date today with this message: There are no limits to what you do. A spirit which also makes up Märklin: to exert fascination for young and old. Across generations. Across any boundaries.
