Marcus Neustetter

Marcus Neustetter is a Johannesburg based artist, cultural activist and producer who reflects critically and playfully on his context through art and collaborative projects. His strategy has been to pro-actively create, play and experiment to build opportunities and experiences that investigate, reflect and provoke. Mostly process driven, his production of art at the intersection of art, science and technology has led him to work in a multi-disciplinary approach from conventional drawings to permanent and temporary site specific installations, mobile and virtual interventions and socially-engaged projects internationally. In partnership with Stephen Hobbs, Neustetter has also been active with The Gallery Premises (closed 2008), The Trinity Session and in their collaborative capacity as Hobbs/Neustetter.
