Mike Kelley: Educational Complex Onwards 1995-2008

Edited by Anne Pontégnie. Text by Mike Kelley, Anne Pontégnie, Diedrich Diederichsen, Howard Singerman.

In1995, Mike Kelley devised the Educational Complex, an amalgam of everyschool he attended and of the house he grew up in, "with all the partsI couldn't remember left out"--a total environment, "sort of like themodel of a Modernist community college." The blind spots in this modelrepresent forgotten ("repressed") zones, and so are reconceived byKelley as sites of institutional abuse, for which specific traumas weredevised (each having their own video and sculptural component). ForKelley, this work marks the beginning of a series of projects in whichpseudo-autobiography, repressed-memory syndrome and thereinterpretation of previous pieces become the tools for a poeticdeconstruction of such complexes and the way we interact with andnarrate them. Educational Complex Onwards, 1995-2008 is thefirst book to collect these works. Each project within the series isextensively documented by artist's texts and reference material, whileessays by Diedrich Diederichsen, Howard Singerman and Anne Pontégnieexamine the place of this body of work within Kelley's oeuvre.
