Marcus Herse is a Los Angeles based artist. Born in 1975 in Dinslaken, Germany, he studied painting at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf, where he received the Meisterschüler Title in 2001 and the Akademiebrief in 2004. He was awarded a DAAD postgraduate grant and studied at the University of California, Los Angeles, in 2002 and 2003. He is a recipient of the dHCS Studio Stipend hosted by the Kunstverein Düsseldorf  from 2007 - 2009, and a fellowship artist of the Contemporary Collectors in Orange County in 2014.
 
Herse’s practice synthesizes video, media installation, classical and app-generated photography, and interactive sculptural objects to explore and question everyday human activity and navigation within the built environment. His contemplative installations, merge filming techniques used in experimental and mainstream cinema with minimal recording methods. In a number of recent videos, he investigates the car as an extension and mobile delineation of the personal sphere making use of navigation apps, and situation specific filming devices, revealing our cities’ arteries as continuously shifting, real-life diagrams, in which current political conditions and social patterns are fused with anthropomorphic concepts and urban psychology. The video series Galleria, recorded between 2011 and 2013, portraits today’s populated superstructures as exemplified by commercial shopping centers. Proto-Situationist and Situationist ideas of experiential urbanism inform this series, as do the historic specificity and apparent failure of these concepts.
 
Recent solo shows include Cruise.Control. 2015, and Galleria, 2013 at Greene Exhibitions, Los Angeles, Almost ther, 2014 at Commonwealth & Council, Los Angeles, and Agent, 2014 at Ginerva Gambino, Cologne.
