ABOUT CLAUDIA LARCHER
Claudia Larcher was born in Bregenz, Austria in 1979. She lives and works in Vienna. Her artistic work deals with architecture. She is interested in places, that are connected to history, familiarity and memory, questioning the meaning of “home” and “identity”. The last years she was working in the field of photocollage, (site-specific) video animation and mixed media installation. She is doing live visuals in performances and for live concerts. Claudia Larcher is co-curating the exhibitions of the artist collective PLINQUE since 2008.
ABOUT THE ERSTE BANK MoreVALUE FILM AWARD
Since 2011, each annual edition of the Viennale (Vienna International Film Festival) has featured the presentation of the MoreVALUE Film Award to one or more Austrian filmmakers whose films are included in the festival. Designed to showcase the best of Austrian cinema, the award was founded by Erste Bank, the Viennale’s main sponsor, and is awarded by an independent jury. The award brings a cash prize as well as a one-month residency as a visiting film scholar hosted and organized by the Deutsches Haus at NYU. The screenings are co-organized by the Deutsches Haus at NYU and the Austrian Cultural Forum New York. Anthology Film Archives has presented the award-winning films in the past, and they continue the tradition this year with special screenings of both of the 2015 winners: Jakob Brossmann’s Lampedusa in Winter and Claudia Larcher’s video work Self.
