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.

Forbidden Beauty

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 next edition of KINO DER KUNST will be held from April 22 – 26, 2020 in Munich. Movie theatres and museums all over Munich will present the International Competition as well as supporting programmes, artists’ talks, symposia and multi-channel installations. Its sensitive issue will be “Forbidden Beauty”.
