   NEW WORK 

Der Sammler - Nachbilder. Wandzeichnung, Museum Folkwang, 2014.
Seit 2012 untersucht Marc Bauer unter dem Titel The Collector in seinem Werk u. a. Aspekte des Sammelns. Er verarbeitet diese zu Zeichnungen auf Papier sowie direkt auf Wänden. Einen Ausgangspunkt für den Werkzyklus bilden Fotografien aus dem Eigentum deportierter Juden während der deutschen Besatzung Frankreichs, insbesondere aus Paris 1941. Bauer zeigt mit der Verwendung von Tim und Struppi Comic-Zeichnungen auch Bezüge zur europäischen Kolonialgeschichte auf sowie zu Exotismus und Wissenschaft – u. a. nutzt er Motive von Schmetterlingssammlungen und Ansichten naturwissenschaftlicher Museen.

Für das Museum Folkwang greift Marc Bauer einerseits auf diese vorhandenen Bilder zurück, ein weiteres zentrales Thema ist andererseits die Geschichte des Museums selbst. Der Hintergrund des Verkaufs und der Zerstörung sogenannter „Entarteter Kunst“ aus der Sammlung des Museum Folkwang spielt hierbei ebenso eine Rolle wie die Umstände um die Wiedergutmachung und den Rückkauf dieser Werke.

A Needle Walks into a Haystack. Liverpool Biennial, curated by Mai Abu ElDahab and Anthony Huberman.
The artists in this exhibition disrupt many of the conventions and assumptions that usually prescribe the way we live our lives. They attack the metaphors, symbols and representations that make up their own environment, replacing them with new meanings and protocols: bureaucracy becomes a form of comedy, silence becomes a type of knowledge, domesticity becomes a place of pathology, inefficiency becomes a necessary vocation, and delinquency becomes a daily routine.

In the Past, Only Le Quartier in Quimper organized 2 solo expositions of Marc Bauer and Dierk Schmidt from 7 June - 21 September.
Marc's exposition, In the Past, Only draws on his residency in Brittany and encounters fuelling his knowledge of the context. Bauer invents characters, among them a teenage boy and a woman working at the Arsenal in Brest, who provide a narrative structure for his new series of drawings. (Part of a text by Keren Detton) Le Quartier, Quimper.
