Biography:

Markus Raetz was born in Büren an der Aare (Switzerland) in 1941. He is one of the most important Swiss contemporary artists. Raetz’s work does not belong to any ‘school.’ It is neither abstract, representational, nor conceptual. He works readily in a variety of media and dimensions. His art pieces are made of found materials such as twigs or eucalyptus leaves, or glass, polaroids, unprepossessing black and white photographs, simple shapes cut from tin in various sizes, little pieces of carved wood or stone, clay, small mirrors and panes of glass, corrugated cardboard, or an assortment of odd linear bits of metal. Since he began showing his work in 1966, Raetz has had exhibitions in many galleries and museums, including all the major Swiss museums and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Kolnischer Kunstverein in Germany, the Serpentine Gallery in London, the New Museum in New York City and, the Arts Club of Chicago. In 1988 he represented Switzerland in the Venice Biennale.
