In connection with the exhibition ‘Keith Haring. The Political Line', the Kunsthal is organising a lively weekend full of Eighties Revival.

The press and public have given the Keith Haring exhibition a very enthusiastic reception. This weekend the Kunsthal offers a supplementary programme with guided tours, lectures, workshops, music, street art, dance and Eighties fun. Sunday 11 October is Kunsthal Family Day with activities for the whole family! Of course that is not the only exhibition in the Kunsthal.
