Peter Kubelka

Kubelka at 80

Retrospective, Lectures, and "Monument Film" (March 23 to April 7, 2014)

On March 23, 2014, Peter Kubelka celebrates his 80th birthday. The co-founder of the Austrian Film Museum and of Anthology Film Archives is a true renaissance man: teacher, musician, cultural critic, Judoka and track athlete, theoretician and practicioner of the culinary arts – and one of the most important filmmakers of all time. Over a two-week period, the Film Museum will repeatedly screen all of his films along with lectures by and about Peter Kubelka, film and TV documents relating to different phases of his work, as well as a rich selection of films made by his former students at the Städel School in Frankfurt. Monument Film, his acclaimed projection performance work of 2012, will be presented for the first time in the "Invisible Cinema", the type of space first conceived by Kubelka in the late 1950s.


Projects in the framework of the Film Museum's 50th anniversary are supported by the Austrian Film Institute, the City of Vienna and the Austrian Federal Chancellery.
