Marc Bauer (*1975 Geneva, Switzerland) has been awarded the GASAG Art Prize 2020. He uses drawing as a medium to address issues like migration, identity and gender, a critique of new media, and links between religion and violence. Based in Zurich and Berlin, the artist conducts detailed research before creating his room-size installations consisting of works on paper, wall drawings, animations and sound. The new narratives that result suggestively combine historical events with fictional elements. For his exhibition “The Blow-Up Regime” at the Berlinische Galerie, Marc Bauer delved into the history of the Internet. He sketches the portrait of a society undergoing transformation as a result of digitalisation and accelerating technological progress.
