Corona Kino
Organized by Art Institute, FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basel

The digital platform Corona Kino was created in spring 2020 as reaction to the current situation but also as a long-term and international project. It hosts two clusters of films: Managing Life and Ocean Nature. Presented in this series, the contributions to Managing Life are about everyday life in pandemic times and are filmed and produced by current and former students of the Art Institute, FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basel. Corona Kino was supported in 2020 by Dachstiftung der Christoph Merian Stiftung.

The Art Institute is dedicated to visual arts education. We are a public institution with a hundred students divided between a three-year bachelor’s program and a two-year master’s program.

Embracing nature and social justice is at the core of our curricula. We offer several types of programs: international symposia, a speakers series titled “Art Taaalkssss,” digital projects like Corona Kino, the podcast Promise No Promises!, and an art commission program open to the public. We believe art and artists make essential contributions to the practice of freedom and to imagining other possible futures.
