Sonderborg, then at the Gesamthochschule Kassel, studying sculpture and painting with Eberhard Fiebig, which he finished in 1983 with a diploma. With linear and minimalist works, he was considered an important representative of the concept art, influenced by Lawrence Weiner, Daniel Buren, Meret Oppenheim and Robert Filliou. Markus Zürcher was active in the Society of Swiss Painters, Sculptors and Architects, but left in the early 1990s, and retreated largely from the active art scene. Since 2000 he was once more active, instrumental in the field of painting and theoretical, conceptual work. (en)
