KINO DER KUNST 2020 postponed until autumn

Following the Bavarian State’s decision to issue a state of emergency due to the spread of COVID-19, the management and team of KINO DER KUNST have decided to postpone the festival for artists’ films originally planned for the end of April 2020. The festival’s International Competition on the topic of Forbidden Beauty is expected to take place as planned in autumn 2020.

Kino der Kunst 20

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.
