Christina Clausen's documentary offers an affectionate, deeply personal glimpse into Haring's life, from his early years growing up in a small, conservative Pennsylvania town to his heyday as a world-renowned artist, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Madonna, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Grace Jones, Yoko Ono, David LaChapelle, Ann Magnuson, Tony Shafrazi, Junior Vasquez, among many others.
The Best Documentary on Haring
- The Universe of Keith Haring review by DJ
probably the best Haring documentary made about him so far by Christina Clausen. It does have an arty 80's feel with the editing, graphics and music but also great interviews from people in his era! It's nice they interviewed his parents and family about him being gay and an artist. They interview about him - David LaChapelle, Yoko Ono, Fab 5 Freddy, Junior Vasquez and others.
There is great archive footage of the 80's NYC art scene at the time featuring Haring and also Jean Michel Basquiat , an early scene Madonna and Andy Warhol
