The work of REICHRICHTER takes root in the relationship between human beings and the living environment, while exploring ways to reflect daily dialogues and spatial structures through conceptual artistic expression.

In this exhibition, REICHRICHTER employs a diverse range of media and content, including photography, video, sound, text, mapping, drawings, objects and interviews, to gradually construct their international projects and local observations.

REICHRICHTER has held exhibitions in Taipei, Hualien, Berlin, Dusseldorf, Cologne, Shenzhen and Barcelona. Their debut work, entitled Zurich, was released in 2012, and was awarded Best Work at LOOP Video Art Fair, Barcelona.

In 2016 and 2018, they were awarded grants from art institutions in Taiwan, Germany, France and the U.S. to conduct research and create art projects in various cities around the world.
