Marc Bauer’s lives in Berlin and Zurich. Over the course of a few weeks in June, Marc decided to move his studio into a dingy hotel in Liverpool, where he thought he could potentially become part of a story of the place.

Marc draws and re-draws the images he finds in his own personal materials—his surroundings, archives or family albums—and uses this very tactile process to add his own vision of what those narratives mean and how representation confirms stereotypes and power systems.

His work has recently been included in Sacré 101 – An Exhibition Based on the Rite of Spring, Migros Museum, Zurich 2014; Donation Guerlain, Centre Pompidou, Paris, 2013; Reality Manifestos, or Can Dialectics Break Bricks? Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna 2012and Acquisitions récentes, cabinet d’art graphique, Centre Pompidou, Paris 2011. Solo exhibitions include Cinerama, FRAC Auvergne, Clermont-Ferrand 2014; The Astronaut, Freymond-Guth Fine Arts, Zurich 2013 Collector, Centre Culturel Suisse, Paris 2013; Nature as Territory, Kunsthaus Baselland, Muttenz/Basel 2012; Premier conte sur le pouvoir, MAMCO, Geneva 2010.
