Kino der Kunst 2020

17 October 2020 - 1 November 2020

Various Locations, Munich, DE

We keep our word: KINO DER KUNST is coming back! And to the cinema, as the name promises. The edition 2020 will be held from October 27 to November 1 in Munich’s theaters and museums. In spite of this difficult time, in spite of Covid-19 and the circumstances that go with it, we are looking forward with joy and a certain relief to a new intensive edition that will let us experience art on the big screen again.

KINO DER KUNST is a worldwide unique combination of film festival and art exhibition that investigates the connection between visual art and cinema; its programmatic focus lies on how cinematographic artists approach fiction and narration. The international competition presents cinematic works in which artists apply formal innovation and a highly aesthetic visual language without losing sight of the serious issues of our time.

The upcoming issue of KINO DER KUNST will be devoted to the theme of “forbidden beauty”.
Political art does not have to be formally mediocre or old-fashioned, critical things can also be packaged in aggressive beauty. KINO DER KUNST 20 wants to show how the art of the moving image can take up the urgent themes of our time in a highly aesthetic visual language.
