Hour: 8 PM

On Friday 28 April, at 8pm, Austrian artist and critic Peter Kubelka will discuss his “Metric Films”, which will be screened during the talk.
Active in filmmaking, music, architecture and writing, Kubelka has been interested in spoken language since the mid 60’s, he has held talks and conferences in which he employes non verbal elements, such as facial mimics.

His “Metric Films” have set the rules of structuralist cinema. With “Arnulf Rainer” (1960), the last film of this brief series, Kubelka realized one of the most radical outcomes of cinematographic art by using its essential elements: light, darkness, silence, white noise. In 1964 he co-founded the Vienna Film Museum. From 1978 to 2000 he taught the “Film and Cooking” at the Städelschule in Frankfurt.

The talk will be held in Italian.
