A Wicked Pack Of Cards a book of unusual business spells

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.

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.
