Markus Jeschaunig lives and works in Graz and the Biosphere. His art practice deals with issues of the relation between culture and environment. Inspired by the dynamics and forces of the lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere the artist seeks to decipher natural, social, spatial and economic systems to formulate a critique of the inertia of the current system. In the language of contemporary art his works evolve between the poles of ecology, landscape, urbanism and technology as well as public space and activism.
Jeschaunig studied art and architecture at the University of Art and Design Linz, Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University Istanbul and Vienna University of Technology from 2002 to 2010. He graduated in architecture from the University of Art and Design Linz in 2010, and completed an internship in the office of Christian Kerez Architekt ETH/SIA in Zurich in 2011. He participated in the Change Course Conference, organized by the Club of Rome in Winterthur 2012. As part of 'team.breathe.austria' he is co-author of "breathe.austria - Austrian pavilion @ Expo 2015 in Milan". He is co-founder of the transdisciplinary Think-tank 'breathe.earth.collective' (2016).
