Since the late 1990s, Michael Riedel has advanced his own model of a self-sustaining artistic production, continuously using reproductions as a means to “reintroduce the system of art into the art system.” His practice has incorporated a wide range of media and included large-scale works on canvas, fabric works, film and video, audio recordings, installations, and events. A central focus is the production and design of books, catalogues, brochures, posters, and invitation cards; these works often accompany and document his exhibitions.
