Martin Beck is a conceptual artist whose sculpture, painting, video and writing works often recycle historical modern discourses on art, design, architecture and other disciplines into installations that confront avant-garde ideology. Graphic works on paper are frequently a vital part of his exhibitions.

Recent venues include Approx.13 Hours, at castillo/corrales, in Paris, France, as well as Martin Beck: Program, at Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, in 2014, and Last Night, at Kunsthaus Glarus, Glarus, Switzerland, in 2013.
