Marc Bauer


Marc Bauer’s (b. 1975, Geneva; lives in Berlin and Zurich) drawing cycles, installations and films reference images sourced from public archives and private family photo albums. His drawings address how displaced historic narrative and memory relate to, and are constructed by, stereotypes, power and ideological systems.

Bauer studied at the École Supérieure d’Art Visuel in Geneva and attended the post-graduate program at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. His works have been presented in numerous exhibitions including Galerie Peter Kilchmann, Zurich (2017), Centre Pompidou, Paris (2017), The Drawing Room, London (2017). He is currently a faculty member at the University of the Arts (ZHdK) in Zurich.
