From the fictional to the documentary treatment of the act of painting, from the biopic to the analytical essay – how film attempts to grasp as well as comprehend painting is illustrated by the series "Kino und Malerei" (Cinema and Painting), using cinema films from recent decades that are both outstanding and unique in their approach. The films will be accompanied by personal introductions from art historians or artists.
