Lars Laumann (born 1975) is one of Norway's most renowned artists internationally. After many years abroad, he is now again based in his birthplace Brønnøysund. His films and installations break down boundaries between documentary and staged, borrowed and created, fiction and fact. Through filming, editing and compiling found material and lived experiences, Laumann creates virtuoso film collages with an extensive personal gallery. Laumann is attracted to the outskirts of popular culture and explores people who live outside the norm, on the margins of the margins. Ambiguity and uncertainty characterize his films. With a global look on popular cultural, icons as well as contemporary political conditions, he illustrates the more complex forces in our culture. Lars has been featured at prestigious institutions like MoMA and New Museum in New York, as well as Kunsthalle Basel and Tate Modern. In Norway he has been presented at the National Museum, Astrup Fearnley and the Artists' House, and in 2017 he was nominated for Lorck Schive's art prize. AMIFF 2018 will present a retrospective of Laumann's films.
