Kinoscope is an online channel that features contemporary art productions located between the fields of visual arts and experimental time-based productions. The selection of works is based on factors intrinsic to them, such as historical relevance, experimentalism, conceptual quality, artistic radicality and connection with the present, always aiming to participate and contribute to reflections on the various current socio-cultural situations that surround us. The channel also aims to expand spaces and access to culture, as many of the works broadcasted by the channel are shown only at film festivals, art shows and the like, which have relatively limited access.
Kinoscope is an initiative by artist Beto Shwafaty. The project was awarded in 2020 by the Proac Lab Emergency Aid Program, with funds from the Aldir Blanc Law (Law No. 14.017, of June 29, 2020, authored by Deputy Benedita da Silva -PT / RJ) and implemented by the Ministry of Tourism, Special Secretariat for Culture of the Federal Government and the Government of the State of São Paulo through the Secretariat of Culture and Creative Economy.
