Kuba Dorabialski is an artist, writer and educator originally from Wrocław, Poland. He works primarily in video installation. His work and research explores the intersections of mysticism, radical leftist politics and the personal poetic; his tools are geography, language and cinema history.

Kuba's work has been exhibited internationally and several of his videos are in the Artbank collection. In 2017, he won the John Fries Award with the video installation Floor Dance of Lenin's Resurrection. In 2019, his work Glasses on My Nosetip won the Open category in the Fisher's Ghost Art Award. In 2021, he premiered his feature length Invocation Trilogy at Carriageworks, curated by Daniel Mudie Cunningham.

He is currently a PhD candidate at UNSW, Art and Design, supervised by Uros Cvoro and Astrid Lorange. His research explores intersections of mysticism and radical politics in Eastern European moving image practice.
