«Markus Raetz, who died on April 14th, has the seventh sense for perceptions of an extraordinary kind. His works astonish like the tricks of a magician. They challenge our visual habits and show us things from a completely different side. In his surprise attacks on the public's visual organs, the "probably most clear-sighted of all Swiss artists" makes use of the most diverse techniques, materials and media.»
