Kino Central 18. – 22.11.2013

This November, the Kino Central will once again present the videos of artists working with our good fellas, the Medienwerkstatt Berlin. The theme of our upcoming screening is “Supervision.” This theme was chosen in response to increased public sensitivity concerning issues of surveillance in our everyday environment, and the phenomena of the evaluations of these observations running out of control.

The Medienwerkstatt was installed in 2008 by the Kulturwerk of bbk berlin with public funds as a workshop of artists for artists to further their practice and gain valuable skills. Besides the many technical facilities available to users of the Medienwerkstatt, such as the Media Lab and Green Screen room, the media workshops themselves strengthen and interlink mutual support networks among artists.

For over 15 years the Kino Central has set up as one of the most interesting repertory cinemas in Berlin. During the last years The Central was distinguished regularly for its prominent annual program, including premieres, cinematic specific features, discoveries and innovations.
