PrizeOfficial Selection in Shoot (photo/video)

Planned as a "beacon of freedom", the message of the Congress Hall (HKW - House of World Cultures) could hardly be more significant at present. Designed by Hugh Stubbins, this icon of architectural modernism was built as the United States' contribution to INTERBAU 1957 in Berlin

In March 2017, Berlin-based "mxprivé" started his Instagram account. Originally conceived as a food account, the imagery was soon to play an important role. The set up is always minimal so as not to distract from the food or the respective dish. mxprivé pursues the desire, through its purist-aesthetic visual language, to bring the characteristics (colour, structure, consistency) of the food, the product to the fore and in this way to achieve more awareness and appreciation for the food, the dish and the cooking craft in the viewer. But - Food is not his only passion!
