Even after having studied Felix Kubin – his various projects and ventures, seen him perform, watched, read, heard, his work…one may still find themself grasping to answer: who is Felix Kubin? And on this occasion Felix Kubin is joined live on stage with the asstonishingly wonderful Mitch & Mitch collective. Indeed this show marks the start of their 5 date German tour together.
Mitch & Mitch
For those unaware, and under the mezmerisation for the worlds unfolding by going into the deep matter of his work or yet obeying the sudden urge to swing their feet when being at one of his concerts, still, in the back of the head, there’s questions: Is he a scientist with the precious bonus of being an artist?

Or is he an artwork telepathed from a space that he created himself as the original artist? Yet what came first? The art or the artist? Or is he an actor playing a character playing an artist that plays the original Felix Kubin? We shall not know.
