About us


KAN-KAN Media is a visual art project that promotes and creates new scenarios and platforms for the exchange of the visual culture and arts around the world. Our aim is to create links between art communities in Asia, Middle-East, Europe and South-America.

The KAN-KAN CINEMA FORUM project started in 2010 in Beijing and then moved to Shanghai to create an open space for screening of contemporary international independent films hosted by Shanghai Minsheng Art Museum.
