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), 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.
Current editorial projects include the English-language copy-editing of the Survival of the Fittest catalog for Kunstpalais Erlangen and the comprehensive volume beuys 2021. 100 Jahre Joseph Beuys for the Heinrich-Heine Universität in Dusseldorf. Recent projects include copy-editing BLAU International 04 – to be published in spring 2021; the Staatliche Kunstmuseum Dresden’s publication August under the direction of Holgar Liebs; and the catalog and exhibition texts for the Living the City exhibition at Berlin's former Tempelhof Airport.
She is currently working on the development of an app, in collaboration with the Berlin Art Prize (funded by Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Europa), which optimizes anonymous application processes and jury discussions; a practical conference on sustainability in the arts (funded by Neu Start Kultur); and the development of a collection at Malzfabrik in Berlin. In her free time, she is co-director of a homeless shelter in Berlin-Kreuzberg.
