Ilse Haider wins the Otto Breicha Award and shows us why at Museum der Moderne Salzburg

The formerly named Rupertinum photo award for outstanding photographic achievement was founded in 1983 alongside the opening of the Rupertinum (now Museum der Moderne Salzburg) and is now known as the Otto Breicha Award.

Otto Breicha (* 26. July 1932, Vienna; † 28. December 2003) was an Austrian art historian, publisher and museum director. The award is presented on a biannual basis to an Austrian or Austrian-based photographer.

The 13th Otto Breicha Award for Photo Art, 2011 goes to Ilse Haider. Ilse Haider follows the footsteps of Alfred Seiland, Otmar Thormann, Branko Lenart, Heinz Cibulka, Manfred Willmann, Walter Berger, Paul A. Leitner, Friedl Kubelka, Seiichi Furuya, Peter Dressler, Ferry Radax and Margherita Spiluttini.

A panel comprising Mag. Christa Breicha, Philipp Otto Breicha, Margherita Spiluttini, Charlotte Kreuzmayr and Dr. Margit Zuckriegl selected the award winner.

Ilse was born in Salzburg, 1965. Following her studies at Akademie der bildenden Künste under Arnulf Rainer and a photography apprenticeship with Franz Hubmann, she studied at the Royal College of Art in London.

Her artistic language is influenced by a marriage of photography and sculpture, surfaces and the three dimensional space. Her work explores a critique of the fixed roll models of the ‘feminine’ and ‘masculine’, as well as stereotypes in advertising and everyday life.

By making the daring decision to award the 46-year-old artist, the panel have acknowledged an emerging interdisciplinary approach in photography, which widens its contexts.

Ilse Haider’s exhibition is on display until 10. 04. 2011.
