Marc Bauer (*1975 in Geneva, Switzerland) has won the GASAG Art Prize 2020. Through the medium of drawing, he tackles themes like migration, identity and gender, critique of new media or the connection between religion and violence. On the basis of intensive research, the artist based in Zurich and Berlin, creates big installations from works on paper, large drawn murals, animations and sound. In this way he sets up new narratives where historical events merge suggestively with fictional elements. For his show at the Berlinische Galerie, Marc Bauer has been exploring the history of the Internet and its impact on individuals and society.
The award initiated by GASAG will take place for the sixth time in partnership with the Berlinische Galerie. Every two years, the partners honour an outstanding artistic contribution at the interface between art, science and technology. The previous winners were: Susanne Kriemann (2010), Tue Greenfort (2012), Nik Nowak (2014), Andreas Greiner (2016) and Julian Charrière (2018).
