MARCUS JOHN HENRY BROWN.
Marcus John Henry Brown is a performance artist based in Munich, Germany. He moved to Germany in 1993 having studied Art & Social context at Dartington College of Arts.
With over 25 years of professional communications experience, Marcus splits his time between performance art, mentoring young creatives, teaching business professionals the dark art of public speaking and creating exciting virtual event experiences for commercial clients and brands.
He has created a series of critically acclaimed performances that look at the relationships between and impact of technology, culture and commerce on society.
THE WICKED PACK OF CARDS SERIES
Marcus is currently researching and producing a series of poems, books, installations, performances, and images that focus on what he calls the myth of business and the business of myths. This new work is based on his long-form poem: A Wicked Pack Of Cards - A book of Unusual Business Spells, and builds upon his 2021 performance HUSTLETOLOGY.
His new performance, THE HUSTLE ROYALE premiered in Berlin on the 8th June 2022.
Prints from his Grand Cardmaster Series are available for purchase upon request.
Marcus' work has been featured in ZEIT ONLINE, Forbes and Spiegel Online. His performances feel and look like keynotes. They have the aura of a business-world spiraling out of control. They have been specifically created for festival and conference stages, which is why Marcus calls them performance hacks.
They confront, polarize and excite.
