Marlene Bart (*1991) lives and works in Hannover and Berlin. She studied “Fine Art” under professor Wolfgang Ellenrieder at the University of Arts in Brunswick (HBK), the Villa Arson (École nationale supérieure d’art) in Nice and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. She holds a masters degree in “Art in Context” from the College of Fine Arts Berlin (UdK), has been a docent at the University of Arts in Brunswick (HBK) between 2017-2020 and at the Bauhaus- University in Weimar since 2020.
Marlene Bart deals in her artistic practice with the combination of scientific and artistic visual language. She focuses on the artistic potential of scientific objects, phenomena and illustrations in works such as anatomy models, taxidermy, cabinets of curiosities or encyclopedias. The use of multimedia techniques allows her to combine a wide range of image content in a playful way, to refer to the historical dimension of scientific publications and to put them in a contemporary context.
