I'm based in Lausanne, but I'm rarely home.

I’m an artist, writer, and a researcher. Occasionally, I teach, collaborate across disciplines, perform random acts of journalism, and conduct investigative field and forensic research for various non-profit initiatives.


Based between Lausanne, Switzerland & London, UK

Mari Bastashevski is an artist, writer, and researcher. Her past works - usually a result of extensive online and field investigations - integrate manifestations of information, photographs, and texts to explore the role of visual presentation in creating and sustaining state-corporate power. Presently, she is engaged in a number of collaborative art and technology initiatives examining the historical nexus between technology, cultural, environmental and political violence. She has exhibited with Maison Populaire, Musée de l’Elysée, HKW Berlin, Art Souterrain, Noorderlicht, and has been published in Time Magazine, The New York Times, Courrier International, Le Monde, e-flux, VICE and a number of other venues. She is an artist in (and out of) residency at Chateau D’Oiron, and has been a technology fellow at the ISP, Yale, and the Data & Society Institute.  She has also been awarded art residencies at IASPIS Stockholm and Cite des Art in Paris.

She represented by Galerie Polaris in Paris, France.
