Cinema C.O.B.R.A.



Cinema C.O.B.R.A. was founded by Lily Benson and Helene Nymann who, in an attempt to awaken the spirit of the COBRA movement, set out to free video art from its often stale surroundings– liberating it from blank walls and institutions. They seek to challenge and expand the potential for moving images to transmit a deeper understanding of time and space.

Their first screening program assembled video-artists based in COpenhagen, BeRlin and A-merica. Cinema C.O.B.R.A. hosts screening-programs in unexpected locations, where carefully selected films speculate on topics such as: animalism, hypersensitivity, the body in times of change, otherworldly adventures etc. Once in a while Cinema COBRA unleashes and wanders the streets illuminating everything and everyone, wherever a portable projector may reach!
