Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition
A comprehensive exhibition on one of the most influential directors of the 20th century: Stanley Kubrick (1928-1999), the genius behind films such as Lolita (1962), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), A Clockwork Orange (1971) and The Shining (1980).
Kubrick's films are both technically and artistically stunning. While content-wise, he often sought to be controversial.
The exhibition is a co-production with the Deutsches Filmmuseum in Frankfurt and shows all aspects involved in the creation of Kubrick's films: from screenplays to storyboards, from set models to actual props, and from costumes to clips of the eventual films and documentaries.
The big, polyester phallus from A Clockwork Orange was added to the exhibition Stanley Kubrick: The exhibition from August 24 onwards. The phallus with a height of almost one meter, turned out to be a sculpture made by Dutch artist Herman Makkink who lived in London in the sixties.
Kubrick bought two of Makkink’s works in his search for artworks that would suit A Clockwork Orange and used the phallus, called Rocking Machine, for one of the best-known scenes in the film.
