Born in 1934 in Frankfurt, Germany, Mary Bauermeister took an interest in the arts at an early age, immersing herself in drawing in secondary school. She was responsible for bringing together emerging artists for events in her studio, later contributing to the Fluxus artistic movement. John Cage, David Tudor, Hans G Helms, and others would come together at Bauermeister’s invitation to collaborate and critique together. Drawn by the vitality of the Pop Art movement, she temporarily relocated to New York where she enjoyed great artistic success. Bauermeister currently lives in Germany and continues to work and exhibit frequently.
