The principal topic of the work of the Swiss artist Markus Raetz (1941-2020) is the nature of visual perception. The focus is not on what the work portrays but on how it is perceived. His sculptures require interactivity by the viewer and can be understood only when viewed from different angles. The same sculpture is YES and NO, but it may also be seen as NES.
