Art on the MOve


Art on the MOve is an initiative that offers exhibition-complementary film series at the Dortmunder U.

Art on the MOve sets our view of art in motion, adds new perspectives to the exhibitions and illuminates the artistic aspects of cinema.

In the biennial program, Art on the MOve shows exciting, artistic films that reflect the themes of the collection presentation Art → Life → Art. Museum Ostwall yesterday, today, tomorrow and the exhibition Nam June Paik: Expose the Music.
