The extraordinary work of one of the most important artists of the 20th century!
Hardly any artist is as relevant to decisive socio-political debates of the present as Jean-Michel Basquiat. His highly symbolic paintings often took up political themes, criticizing racism, social injustice, and consumer capitalism. His diverse oeuvre reflects how Basquiat set his powerful compositions against hierarchies and rules. The publication will provide new insights into the artist's unique visual language and decode the idiosyncrasy of his artistic ideas.
