Fight AIDS Worldwide is a signed lithograph by Keith Haring from 1990 and is a limited edition of 1000. The print shows a large stick figure stooped over and crushed by a number of other figures piled on top of one another. Rendered in Haring’s typical bold outlines these figures are seemingly denigrated by AIDS and have been neglected by the outside world, dumped into this single picture frame. Haring uses lines that radiate from the bodies to inject the print with a sense of urgency and movement.
Haring wished to create art to enrich the lives of oppressed communities throughout the world and central to many of his activist works was the subject of the 1980s AIDS epidemic. Fight AIDS Worldwide actively rallies against the injustices that the epidemic brought to many, much like other works by Haring such as Ignorance = Fear (1989) and Stop AIDS (1989) that seek to raise awareness and eradicate the stigma attached to the disease.
Using his trademark linear, figurative style Haring communicates the importance of fighting AIDS in a playful visual language that was widely recognised and understood. Following his own AIDS diagnosis in 1988, Haring continued to raise awareness of the virus in a way that focused on the richness of life and love as opposed to giving his expression a fatalistic character.
