This spring, Munich will once again spotlight media art. Under the motto “Science & Fiction,” the second edition of the world’s unique artists’ film festival KINO DER KUNST, will be held from April 22 to 26. The theme of this edition is the growing influence of technical and aesthetic inventions by visual artists on today’s media landscape—from cinema to video games—with an emphasis on creative approaches to narration. The program includes current short and long films by visual artists from all over the world in an exhaustive international competition with 25.000 euros of prize money, and a large-scale exhibition in the Pinakothek der Moderne and the Museum Brandhorst titled Creating Realities with more than 17 works from the last 20 years. To complete the program, there will be a one-man-show of this year’s Louis Vuitton award winner in the Espace Louis Vuitton Munich, artists’ talks, lectures, gallery shows and a young talent pitch competition for future projects. Other highlights will include an homage to the artist and filmmaker Harun Farocki, who passed away in summer 2014, held in the Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts. An exhibition in the State Museum of Egyptian Art will be dedicated to the dialog between the fine arts and artistically outstanding video games.
 
Partly beginning already in February, the Pinakothek der Moderne and Museum Brandhorst, in cooperation with the Goetz Collection and KINO DER KUNST, will present Creating Realities. Encounters between Art and Cinema with single- and multi-channel installations by media artists born in the 1960s to 1980s. Ranging from Yang Fudong or Pierre Huyghe to Ed Atkins, Camille Henrot or Ryan Trecartin, all of these artists have dealt intensively with the evolution of narrative cinema. Opening of the entire exhibition as part of KINO DER KUNST is on April 21 at 7pm.
