Pioneer of experimental cinema and one of the founders of the Austrian Film Museum and Anthology Film Archive, Peter Kubelka will give a lecture on history of communication, cinema, and gastronomy from the Stone Age to the present day.
Lections-performances, which Kubelka has held since 1966, unite the fundamental passions of the artist—cooking, cinematography and education. In 1978 the director started his own course Film and Cooking as Art at the Städel School in Frankfurt which led until 2000. Kubelka conducts lectures in a special performative style, where art history and philosophy exist on an equal footing with everyday objects: cookware, musical instruments, and food.
The event offers new ways to consider such a casual and routine process as cooking.
