Requiem is an homage to a little known bit of the history of Lincoln Park: in the nineteenth century, this land was the city cemetery, but in subsequent years, many of the bodies were removed to new locations. This work was never completed, however, and the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 destroyed burial records and grave markers, so a number of bodies still lay under Lincoln Park to this day. Requiem is a tribute to those still buried.

Malachi Ritscher was first presented as Public Collectors' contribution to the 2014 Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art. In addition to numerous never before exhibited materials drawn from the Ritscher Collection at Creative Audio Archive, Malachi Ritscher includes objects borrowed from close friends and others associated with the late documentarian and activist.
