    Encounters between Art and Cinema

    An exhibition at the Pinakothek der Moderne and Museum Brandhorst,
    in cooperation with the Goetz Collection and KINO DER KUNST


    The donation of 375 video works from the Goetz Collection to the Free State of Bavaria in 2014 seals a gap in the Bavarian museum landscape while simultaneously continuing Munich’s long-standing tradition as a film and media hub in Germany. The endowment now provides a variety of opportunities for future displays in the area of video and new-media art. Last year saw the launch of the art-film festival KINO DER KUNST, which garnered international attention from the moment the lights dimmed for its very first screening. KINO DER KUNST is about to be held for the second time, with events taking place from 22 April to 26 April 2015. Read more

    To date, narrative structures are frequently linear and concentrate on a central protagonist: a legacy of 19th-century literature. This formal conservatism is being broken down more and more by two artistic forms that seem incompatible only at first glance. The first of these forms is narrative multi-channel installations; the second is video games for Xbox, Playstation, Wii or computer – which are increasingly replacing cinema and television for the younger generation in particular.
