Cyrill Lachauer

Questioning methods from the field of cultural anthropology, Cyrill Lachauer explores landscapes and places, the transformation of signs and artifacts and the manner in which traditions and stories affect our cultural imagination. In his most recent work, „Full Service“, Lachauer examines myths of the American West, Las Vegas and its promise of wealth and the Indian „Ghost Dance“ movement. In „Full Service“ he has discovered a unique form that combines ethnographic field work, road trip and a tribute to the American cinema, capturing the ambiguity of reality without making value judgments.
Born in 1979 he studied film at HFF Munich and cultural anthropology before studying at UDK Berlin with Lothar Baumgarten.
