Kino ARMATA has the pleasure of organizing a concert of Felix Kubin, a well-known German artist and composer, on Thursday, 21 July 2022, from 21:00h, at the preview of Manifesta 14 Prishtina.
Felix Kubin’s performance is a part of Kino ARMATA’s Four Ways from Sundown programme, curated by Sezgin Boynik, Alush Gashi and Vigan Nimani for Manifesta 14 Prishtina, also featuring Jean-Marc Montera / Jean-François Pauvros, Anna Thew and Sylvain George. Four Ways from Sundown is supported by Foundation Manifesta 13 Marseille.
Felix Kubin is a composer, creator of radio plays, performer, media artist and curator. A lovechild of the home recording era (he started to compose electronic 4-track music at the age of 12), his activities span futurist pop, electroacoustic and chamber orchestra music, radio art, lecture performances and writing. In 1998 he founded his own record label Gagarin Records. Over the last two decades, he has released numerous albums of different conceptual formats and played at well over hundred international contemporary music festivals. The French film artist Marie Losier ("The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye") has shot an award-winning docu-phantasma about him that premiered at Locarno film festival in 2019 and has been shown on ARTE TV and film festivals worldwide. Felix Kubin likes to move between high and low culture, clubs and concert halls, as his main concern is the shifting of contexts and expectations.
