Centre d’Art Contemporain Geneve opens new cinema space

After having developed a large programme related to moving images and in preparation for the 2014 Biennial of Moving Images, the Centre has decided in 2013, under the new direction of Andrea Bellini, to broaden the presentation modes through the creation of a new cinema space, within the walls of the institution.

The cinema will offer an adapted venue to moving images with various formats and lengths, as well as to special events, such as retrospectives and projections in the presence of the artists.

In addition to this new spatial possibility, the Centre is also willing to be more strongly involved in the production of artists’ films.
