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.

The boxset includes a short biography of the artist. A short story about Keith Haring and his attitude. He was one of the most renowned of the young artists, ﬁlmmakers and performers of his generation. His work responded to urban street culture of the 1980s. Inspired by the grafﬁti artists whose marks covered the city’s subway cars, Haring began to draw in white chalk over the black paper used to cover vacant advertising panels. As early as 1980, Haring began exhibiting in galleries and museums around the world but continued to participate in public projects. Throughout his career, Haring produced murals, sculptures and paintings to beneﬁt hospitals and underprivileged children’s groups.
