Markus Müller’s main artistic interest is in the field of spatial representation. His work, examining the potential of craftsmanship as an image and strategy for today’s society, has been shown in various institutions in Switzerland and abroad, including Kunstmuseum Basel, Kunsthaus Glarus, Néon – diffuseur d’art contemporain in Lyon and Cafe Gallery Projects London. Permanent interventions in public space – whether in Basel, St.Gallen, Winterthur or Teufen – allow him to introduce this topic into the daily routine of an urban environment. Markus Müller’s work has been honoured with the Swiss Art Award, the Manor Art Prize or membership of the Swiss Institute in Rome. Since 2010 he has been teaching in the study programme at the Fine Arts Department of Berne University of the Arts.
