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 and exhibition texts for Empört Euch! opening at Kunstpalast Düsseldorf on October 29, 2020 and completing translations for the Zurich University of the Arts Trends & Identity Department. She was recently named Deputy Creative Director for a private collection currently being developed at Malzfabrik in Berlin. In her free time, she is co-director of a homeless shelter in Berlin-Kreuzberg.
Recent translations include the Living the City catalog and exhibition for the eponymous exhibition at the former Tempelhof Airport, 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.
