Berthold Reiß, born in 1962 at Salzburg, and now lives and works as an artist in Munich. In his pictures, sculptures and texts, signs from the everyday world or collective memory reappear. Even if these seem to be pictograms, they are not used to convey information, rather an image surface that presents itself as primarily formal and often transparent. Most of his works are therefore watercolours. In 2021 he began doing the illustrations for the horoscopes in German Vogue. Recent solo exhibitions include Antinomia (Kunstraum München, 2020), Everything lost is meant to be found (Galerie Christine Mayer, Munich, 2019), Sphinx (Galerie Rupert Pfab, Düsseldorf, 2019), Exemplar (Kunstverein Freiburg, 2019) and und du wirst nichts vergessen (and you will not forget anything) (Galerie Rupert Pfab, Düsseldorf, 2016).
Berthold Reiß was a resident at Tarabya Cultural Academy from May 2014 to January 2015.
