Jan Bauer ( born 1972 in Schwerin), has studied with Professor Astrid Klein at the Leipzig Academy of Visual Arts (HGB). He is an archivist and an observer. In his new works he embellishes a discovered archive using newspaper excerpts. In the series as well as in his earlier works, he constructs a dialog between picture and speech whereby in this case Bauer incorporates the backsides of the newspaper article. The drawings are displayed in lightboxes !

With best regards,

Roger Sonnewald
