For already the seventh time in a row, the ARCOTEL Moser Verdino chose the postcard motif of the year for its famou postcard collection on 29. September 2011. This year, the motif was selected from among the works of Carinthian artist Richard Klammer.
Opening the formal part of this splendid evening, Resident Manager, Christoph Hafner welcomed the guests to the conferencing facilities of the ARCOTEL Moser Verdino by delivering a higly entertaining introductory speech. The guests then proceeded to take a closer look at the presented artworks and subsequently cast their votes for their favourite. The vote was followed by culinary pleasures at the buffet before the winning motif was announced. Entiteles "Fremder Verkehrsort Favela 5", Klammers's remarkable painting will be printed on postcards and as such become part of the ARCOTEL Moser Verdino postcard collection.
This collection is first and foremost intended to support Carinthian artists. In addition, the ARCOTEL Moser Verdino wants to uphold the postcard as a charming orm of holiday mail and keep it from falling into oblivion in times of the internet since it was originally created by a nephew of the former Moser inn's landlady.
