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.
