The first travelling exhibition dedicated to the life and work of Stanley Kubrick (1928-1999) reaches Amsterdam this summer. EYE, Amsterdam’s new film museum, will stage Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition – with objects and documents from the private archives of the director – from June 21 to September 9. The Deutsches Filmmuseum spent eight months researching the collection Kubrick left in his home near London which was, until recently, inaccessible. A film retrospective accompanies the exhibition.
Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition includes photographs, letters, props, costumes, screenplays and cameras. Occupying 1200m² in EYE, the exhibition features
objects such as the Star Child from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), the dresses of the sisters in The Shining (1980) and the ‘Born to Kill’ helmet of Private Joker from Full Metal Jacket (1987). Kubrick’s preoccupation with architecture, design and contemporary art can be seen in the authentic models of The War Room from Dr. Strangelove (1964), the maze from The Shining, the Korova Milk Bar from A Clockwork Orange (1962) and the centrifuge from 2001: A Space Odyssey.
