BIX Media Competition


Under the auspices of the “BIX Media Competition”, protagonists from different disciplines were invited to put together a project for the Kunsthaus Graz BIX façade. The jury comprising Toshiharu Ito, Hiroyuki Moriwaki, Miki Okabe, Makoto Sei Watanabe, Adam Budak, Christine Frisinghelli and Peter Pakesch has two prizes to award. The “Peter Cook Prize” is awarded by the architect of the Kunsthaus. Both prize-winners’ works (“Tentacle”, 2005 by Kentaro Taki and “Waterfall”, 2005 by Shinsuke Kajituka) will be shown as part of “Chikaku. Time and Memory in Japan”.
