Michael Riedel

Four Proposals for Change

6 to 8 March 2009

Responding to an invitation by the Städel Museum, the artist Michael Riedel (b. 1972) carried out a project in conjunction with the exhibition “The Master of Flémalle and Rogier van der Weyden” (21 November 2008 – 1 March 2009). His focus here was less on the artworks themselves than on the manner in which the pictorial material of the exhibition objects is processed. In particular, he employed the media by which the show was conveyed to the public – from the printed announcements to the catalogue. His interventions in the production of these media created a pictorial nomenclature which departs from the original function of the printed matter.
