A joint project of the Aargauer Kunsthaus and the Solothurn Film Festival
Film and art have been inseparably linked since the invention of the medium of film. In January 2017, the Aargauer Kunsthaus and the Solothurn Film Festival are devoting an exhibition (Cinéma mon amour. Film in Art) and a special programme (Art mon amour) to the reciprocal fascination between art and film. During the 52th Solothurn Film Festival from 19 to 26 January, 2017 circa ten Swiss and international films will be shown as part of the Fokus special programme. At the same time, the Aargauer Kunsthaus opens its doors for a 13-week group show featuring works of contemporary artists that deal with film and cinema in a variety of ways.
