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 currently working as a translator and editor with the Berlin Biennale 11 communications team. She is also translating the catalog, as well as all communications and exhibition texts for the forthcoming Living the City exhibition at the Tempelhof Airport in September 2020. The comprehensive catalog and exhibition present over fifty innovative projects from the fields of art, architecture, and city planning from across Europe.
Recent translations include Timm Rautert: Image-Analytical Photography (June 2020) published by Steidl and edited by the Staatlichen Kunstsammlungen Dresden; Kathe Kruse's Ich Sehe (DISTANZ, April 2020) as well as the first English language editions of both The Weekender and Fräulein magazines.
Additional past projects include a position as Editorial Director of the Berlin Travel Festival and The New Traveler magazine; writing and editing collection texts for Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary; copy-editing Spector Books forthcoming Ten Cities; the translation of Fazit, for the 2019 exhibition by realities:united at the Berlinische Galerie; Christian Falsnaes’ catalog FORCE; Carsten Nicolai's Tele; Tomas Saraceno’s Flying Plaza: Work Journal; and Patrick Angus: Private Show for Kunstmuseum Stuttgart. 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.
