Images of space are dreams of society.

Marc Schmitz is a conceptual multi-disciplinary artist based in Berlin and Ulaanbaatar. He explores the foundations of the different media that he is in use with, by challenging their limits. His works convey sensuality and thought, inviting the viewer to enter into a mutually constructive dialogue, while addressing the limitless space with all of the viewer’s basic senses. His works have been exhibited internationally, are represented in private and public collections and have been remarked with several international awards.
