Performance Art Medley
Markus Goessi was born in Eastern Switzerland, the son of a paralyzed, feminist mother and a social democratic factory worker. First Goessi did an apprenticeship as an optometrist and lived for a long time as a middle-class optician in Central Switzerland. He loved to travel, to dance, photograph and paint.
It was not until he was over 30 years old and attended a independant school of art and design in Lucerne that the final decision came about to make art. Before and during his art studies at the FHBB HGK in Basel, he attended various performance workshops.
