KINO DER KUNST investigates the connection between visual art and cinema; its programmatic focus lies on how cinematographic artists approach fiction and narration. This year’s topic of the competition is “Forbidden Beauty”. The competition will present cinematic works in which artists apply formal innovation and a highly aesthetic visual language without losing sight of the serious issues of our time.

Born 1958 in Ontario, Canada, the photographer and filmmaker lives today in London and mostly works in a crossover of abstract analysis, the tradition of experimental film and the emotional perception of landscape or architecture.
Much of his work focuses on style and technology of film, for instance on the complex narration of long tracking shots. His films are nearly always short, precise exercises on particular techniques of filmmaking and spatial perception, they particularly tend to look at contemporary cities, film history, and the way film has impacted ideas about everyday life. Mark Lewis had many solo shows in important museums around the world and represented in 2009 Canada at the Venice Biennale.
