Artists share works they’ve kept hidden away until now. This section is inspired by Hans Peter Feldmann, who once, on the occasion of an exhibition, asked Fischli&Weiss to send him images of works that they had never intended to show

BY MANDLA REUTER

Over the last few years Mandla Reuter has mostly worked on the question of how places can be defined or occupied, often establishing a certain minimal narration within the spatial connections and structures he develops within his exhibitions. His show at Kunsthalle Basel in 2013, for which he entirely altered the floor plan of the building, was derived in large part from a plot of land in Los Angeles that has never appeared on image, but that Reuter claims to have acquired some years ago. 

The selection of images found on Reuter’s computer in Berlin come from different sources, folders and years. It consists partly of photographs he took himself while working or walking, and partly of found images — sources which he might use or not, but all of which serve him as notes or points of departure for his practice.

Mandla Reuter (1975) lives and works between Basel and Berlin. He has had solo exhibitions at Kunsthalle Basel, De Vleeshal and Schinkelpavillion. His work has been included in group exhibitions at Sorø Kunstmuseum, Sprengel Museum Hannover, KunstWerke and Kunsthalle Mulhouse.
