Harald Falckenberg, one of the most important collectors of Mike Kelley’s works, gives in his essay a detailed overview over the various periods in the development of this artist. In detail Falckenberg investigates the influences of the art-market on Kelley’s production and the reasons for the suicide of the artist in January, 2012.
