Exhibtion, films, talks & events
21 June 2012 — 9 September 2012
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.
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.
“A spectacular and intimate exhibition.”
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 metre 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.
Films, talks & more
Parallel to the exhibition, Eye staged a retrospective of Kubrick's films, from The Killer's Kiss (1955) to Eyes Wide Shut (1999). With a special programme, which included debates, interviews and lectures, Eye zoomed in on both Kubrick's work and his sources of inspiration.
An exhibition by the Deutsches Filmmuseum (Frankfurt am Main), Christiane Kubrick and The Stanley Kubrick Archive (University of the Arts London).
