Performance lecture by Peter Kubelka: Metaphors for the mouth, eyes and ears

Garage Screen. III Moscow International Experimental Film Festival MIEFF
30 September 2018


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.


Peter Kubelka, director and theoretician of art, was born in Vienna in 1934. Since the 1950s, Kubelka has been an influential figure in avant-garde cinema. He is one of the founders of the Austrian Museum of Cinema, which he directed until 2001. In 1970, together with Jonas Mekas, he founded one of the largest American archives of experimental cinema—Anthology Film Archives. He was a professor at the Städel School in Frankfurt and is also known as a non-writing theorist: in his lectures, he uses various non-verbal elements, such as facial expressions, music, food, objects and tools.
