Extraordinary works of art in extraordinary places: With FACING NEW CHALLENGES we focus on new tendencies in the border area of film, visual art and other media.

FACING NEW CHALLENGES explores the current possibilities of the moving image beyond the usual cinema formats. Whether concept films, web formats or installations based on models such as Julian Rosefeldt, Steve McQueen, Hito Steyerl or the late Harun Farocki: through the interplay of artworks and venues such as the Kunsthalle Mannheim, we want to gain new insights into the relationship between film and other arts together with you.
