Description

Over the past decade, German artist Michael Riedel (born 1972) has incorporated a wide range of media into his practice, including works on canvas, fabric works, film and video, audio recordings and installations. A central focus of his work is the publishing and production of artist’s books, catalogues, brochures, posters and cards. In 2000, Riedel and Dennis Loesch launched a collaborative project in an abandoned building in Frankfurt. Using the building’s address—Oskar-von-Miller Strasse 16—as the name for their new space, they created an experimental laboratory where they restaged cultural events held at other locations throughout the city, including readings, film screenings, exhibitions and concerts—sometimes days or weeks after the original event. With the motto of “record, label, playback,” a group of young artists reiterated the language of a city’s cultural offerings, exploring the faults of transmission and transference created by this decontextualization. “Oskar” documents this project.
