Marcel Odenbach
 
Born in 1953, Marcel Odenbach lives and works in Köln. Since the mid-1970s, he has produced an extensive body of tapes, performances, drawings and installations, and has gained international recognition as one of Germany’s most important artists working in video. His works engage in a provocative discourse on the construction of the “self” in relation to historical and cultural representation. Using excerpts from films and newsreels, along with his own footage, the artist explores the ways images of the past shape our perception of the present.
