This text by American artist Mike Kelley is largely based on his work The Educational Complex. It describes his motives and the formation process for this work of art, which consists of one large model. The model is a configuration of several building fragments: an intuitive reconstruction by memory of all the childhood schools Kelley attended. Translating these into one model is caused by Kelly’s fascination for the Repressed Memory Syndrome, a controversial method in mental health care for treating traumatic disorders. Kelley relates this to an architectural space, and from there, he elaborates on the broader context of his work.
