Corona Kino has been specially created to host two clusters of films: Managing Life and Ocean Nature. The contributions of Managing Life are about life and were filmed and produced primarily by students as well as alumnae and alumni of the Art Institute. We also hope to expand the Managing Life series with contributions by art students from other communities in the near future. Ocean Nature, the second group of films, is a series of new commissions about the ocean produced by TBA21–Academy. We would like to take this opportunity to humbly and plainly stress the importance of supporting artistic practice and endeavour during these times where physical exhibitions seem like an uncertain option.
