Mari Bastashevski (b.1980 St. Petersburg, Russia) is an artist based in Switzerland. Her work converges on investigative research, art, and journalism, deliberately blurring the boundaries between these practices. Bastashevski makes installations that combine texts, images, and documents to explore questions of secrecy and access to information, and their intersection with the systems of state and corporate power.
Bastashevski received a BA in Political Science and Art History from Copenhagen University and a MA in photography. Her work has appeared in Medium, Wired, Courrier International, The New York Times, Le Monde, and Esquire, and has been exhibited at the Musee de l’Elysee, Noorderlicht, Art Souterrain, among others.
