Marlie Mul is an artist whose art work manifests somewhere in between sculpture, painting, education, distribution, writing, experiments in branding, the social, and the virtual. She teaches in the MFA WorkMaster at HEAD (Haute école d’art et de design) in Geneva, Switzerland.

With Harry Burke, Marlie Mul co-edits ground, a counter-institutional fanzine that sets out to look beyond institutions in their current form as dominant frameworks for artistic production, and embraces grassroots political and aesthetic perspectives.
