Two years ago, in Munich was launched the reputable International festival KINO DER KUNST with great enthusiasm and as the Artistic Director Dr Heinz Peter Schwerfel says “thanks to the support of an initiative by Ingvild Goetz”.

The Kino der Kunst has set itself the goal of focusing on a small but signigicant niche: narrative film by visual artists. As Dr Scwerfel says, “we believe that contemporary fiction in particular gets to the heart of our present….a rigorous selection of films as well to the museum presentations that show how narrative artists’ films are lading the way…”

A series of artists talk are taking place since Thursday at the foyer of the Museum Brandhorst at 6.30 pm
