Plenty: Dichtung und Wahrheit

PLENTY: DICHTUNG UND WAHRHEIT
London Event Gallery
Tuesday 1 November 2011, from 7pm

The free screening series PLENTY has proposed a new way of looking at artists’ films by showing only a single work, regardless of its duration. Each film was given the freedom to unfold on its own terms, and the viewer is given the time and space to consider it. This is the last event in the series.

Dichtung und Wahrheit (Peter Kubelka, 2003)

Tuesday 1 November 2011, from 7pm
DICHTUNG UND WAHRHEIT

DICHTUNG UND WAHRHEIT (Poetry and Truth
Peter Kubelka, Austria, 2003, 16mm, colour, silent, 13 minutes

In cinema, as in anthropological study, the ready-made reveal ssome of the fundamental poetry and truth of our lives. Peter Kubelka unearthed sequences of discarded takes from advertising films and presents them, almost untouched, as documents that unwittingly offer valuable and humorous insights into the human condition.

“Peter Kubelka is the world's greatest filmmaker – which is to say, simply: see his films! … by all means/above all else … et cetera.” (Stan Brakhage)

Peter Kubelka (born 1933) is an artist, anthropologist, cook and teacher. Active as a filmmaker over five decades, his total output amounts to some sixty-two minutes of screen time in which he explores the essential qualities of cinema.

PLENTY is a free monthly screening series selected by Mark Webber, and forms part of the Brief Habits programme curated by Shama Khanna. Supported by Arts Council England.
