Kino International is a landmark building and cinema on the Karl-Marx-Allee, which is now devoting its attention towards visual art. KIK (Kino - International - Kunst) will organise four art exhibitions a year at the venue. The uniqueness of KIK is the world-class quality of the movie theatre, which will be used for each exhibition as a screening point and focus for an artist's video. Each video will help create an individual theme, which will be reflected throughout the curated exhibition. KIK directors, Christopher Winter and Peter Wilde will also invite 2 guest curators each year to create shows for the space. Not only will the movie theatre, foyer and panorama bar be used but also spaces in the building beyond usual public access where there are possibilities to exhibit visual, installation and performance art. The exhibition openings will take place as an event on Friday night in the spirit of the former Tape Modern. Our aim is to showcase a very high quality of work from both emerging and established artists who are exhibiting and/or living in Berlin.
