Markus Selg

Markus Selg is multidisciplinary artist. His scenographic installations condense video, sculpture, architecture and performance into immersive spaces and ritualistic stages that create a new dynamic between archaic myths and digital technologies. In 2009 he staged the exhibition course Spuren der Sonne with Werner Herzog and Jannis Kounellis. His feature film Das Ewige Antlitz premiered in Prague in 2012. Three years later, the Frans Hals Museum showed his retrospective exhibition Primitive Data. Since 2015 Markus Selg works closely with theatre director Susanne Kennedy. For example Coming Society (2019) and Ultraworld (2020), both presented at Volksbühne Berlin. For Ultraworld Selg received the Faust Award 2020 for best stage design. I AM (VR) (2020), their joint Virtual Reality Experience, premiered at Theater Commons Tokyo, and in 2022 they staged the opera Einstein on the Beach by Philip Glass at Theater Basel.
