Marcus Steinweg


Marcus Steinweg (* 1971 in Koblenz, living in Berlin) studied philosophy, German and classical philology and currently teaches at the Braunschweig University of Art. He is co-editor of the journal Inaesthetics, which addresses the relationship between art and philosophy. In 2011, he curated the exhibition Kunst und Philosophie (Art and Philosophy) at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein. In cooperation with the internationally renowned Swiss artist Thomas Hirschhorn the publication MAPS (Berlin, Merve, 2011) was produced, as well as joint artistic works with Hirschhorn, which were shown, among others, at the Tate Modern, London (2004), at the documenta11, Kassel (2002) and the 48th Venice Biennale (1999).
For Neuer Berliner Kunstverein Steinweg created eight diagrams with philosophical visualizations of thoughts and concepts - graphically treated in a clear way, yet at the same time enigmatically encrypted.
