In 1988 Keith Haring decided to collaborate with William S. Burroughs, American writer, essayist and painter when he was diagnosed with AIDS, creating this series of ten different screen prints, 'Apocalypse', which describes the history of Haring's personal struggle with disease.
The Apocalypse intended as a final act, when every man sees and hears the creatures of all his nightmares, here, now and real as they have never been.
