Alicia Reuter is a freelance art historian, writer, editorial consultant, and translator based in Berlin. She co-founded the Berlin Art Prize in 2013 and works with numerous art and cultural publications and institutions, museums and universities. She moved to Berlin in 2005 after studies in the United States (B.A. Art History) and Florence (Post Bacc. Art History) and completed her M.A. in Art History at the Freie Universität Berlin.
Her writing generally covers contemporary art and culture topics, although she does enjoy the occasional foray into travel writing and copy text production. Her editorial work ranges from start-to-finish conceptualization for publications, including the commission of essays, interviews, and articles, to line-by-line copy-editing. As a translator, she draws on her experience as an editor and writer to deliver precise copy that maintains the voice of the original text.
She is Editorial Director of the Berlin Travel Festival as well as The New Traveler magazine. She is also developing the next edition of the Berlin Art Prize, which will be held in nine Berlin project spaces in September 2019. Other current projects include writing and editing collection texts for Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary, copy-editing Spector Books forthcoming Ten Cities, the translation of a forthcoming book on image-analytical photography, as well as the translation of the forthcoming catalog, Fazit, for a spring 2019 exhibition by realities:united at the Berlinische Galerie.
Recent projects include the translation of Christian Falsnaes’ catalog FORCE (DISTANZ, 2018), the Carsten Nicolai's Tele catalog for the Berlinische Galerie (DISTANZ, 2018), Tomas Saraceno’s Flying Plaza: Work Journal (Spector Books, 2018), and Patrick Angus: Private Show for Kunstmuseum Stuttgart (DISTANZ, 2017). She was an English language editor for the re-launch of the Haus der Kunst Munich website, assisted with editing publications for documenta 14 (Athens and Kassel), and managed the production of the Ars Viva 2018 catalog, among others.
