Marc Bauer:

Born 1975 Geneva, Marc Bauer lives and works in Berlin and Zurich. Graduated from BA Fine Art at HEAD Geneva (1999); and Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Amsterdam (2004).

Bauer's work deals with the representation of history and memory, taking historical events and their documentation, reworking them in a drawing-based process, and placing them in new contexts.
The results of this approach are often presented in the form of installations, with drawings made on a range of materials: paper, aluminium, or straight onto the wall. Preceded by extensive research, Bauer's works present historiography as a construction that is always subject to personal interpretation.
