Photographer's Note

The artwork on the left is 1234567890 by Brigitte Kowanz. It is made of mirrors in mirrors, neons and steel. The place is Borusan Contemporary.


Borusan Contemporary is a museum and a multi-platform program of exhibitions, events, educational initiatives, new commissions and site specific installations rooted in Borusan contemporary art collection. These activities are defined by their specific focus on media arts broadly defined, ie artists who work with time, light, technology, video, software and beyond. Most of the program takes place at the museum at Perili Köşk Istanbul, and co-exists with the offices of Borusan Holding, in essence creating a unique museum in an office paradigm. The entire building including the galleries, office space, café, BC Shop and outdoor terraces with breathtaking views of the Bosphorus are open to the public on the weekends.


Since the early 1980s, Viennese artist Brigitte Kowanz has consistently worked with light and reflection as the core medium of her internationally renowned practice of wall pieces, installations and architectural interventions that transcend form via a rich conceptual and metaphorical practice. Kowanz was born in Vienna in 1957, where she studied at Universität für angewandte Kunst (University of Applied Arts). In 2009, she won the Großer Österreichischer Staatspreis, Austria’s most prestigious price for fine arts. She has shown her work extensively internationally including recent large scale shows at Museum Ritter, Waldenbuch, Galerie im Taxispalais, Innsbruck and MUMOK Museum moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig in Wien. Since 1997 she has taught arts throughout Vienna. Currently she has a Professorship in transmedia art at the University of Applied Arts.
