Alicia Reuter is a freelance art historian, writer, editorial consultant, and translator based in Berlin.
She co-founded the Berlin Art Prize e.V. in 2013 and is currently Art Basel’s Deputy Editor ad interim. In April 2022, she organized and launched Primal Green, which supports independent cultural organizations and practitioners in implementing sustainable practices. Additionally, she is curating a Kunst am Bau project in Berlin-Kreuzberg and producing the next edition of the Berlin Art Prize, which will open in September 2022.
She has worked with numerous art and cultural publications, 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 covers contemporary art and culture topics. Her editorial work ranges from start-to-finish conceptualization and management 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.
Recent projects include: supporting the 12th Berlin Biennale communications team; copyediting the comprehensive volume beuys 2021. 100 Jahre Joseph Beuys for the Heinrich-Heine Universität in Dusseldorf; copy-editing BLAU International 05; translation and copyediting the Staatliche Kunstmuseum Dresden’s publication August; and translating the Glossary of Terms for Common Good-Oriented Urban Development for the Bundesinstitut für Bau-, Stadt- und Raumforschung. In spring 2021, she developed the YesNoMaybe app in collaboration with the Berlin Art Prize (funded by Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Europa), which optimizes anonymous application processes and jury discussions. In her free time, she runs marathons and volunteers at a homeless shelter in Berlin-Kreuzberg.
