In the DISTANZ publication „Muster des Kunstsystems [wallpapers]“, Riedel brings together patterns shown at numerous institutions, including the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the Sprengel Museum in Hannover, and the Schirn in Frankfurt for his exhibition Kunste zur Text. The catalog also provides insight into the artist’s latest architectural work, including the design of the façade of the Modern Gallery, Saarland Museum in Saarbrücken (Germany) and the ceiling of Cornell Tech in New York.
