Dear Colleagues and Friends:
we are pleased to announce the opening of our exhibition "Stanley Kubrick" at the
Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin on 19 January 2005 at 7pm. In cooperation with the
Filmmuseum Berlin - Deutsche Kinemathek and the support of the 55th Berlin International
Film Festival, our exhibition will be presented until 11 April 2005. Main sponsors
are the Hauptstadtkulturfonds and the Federal Cultural Foundation.
The extensive exhibition is supplied by Kubrick's estate which was first made accessible
by the Deutsches Filmmuseum. It presents originals interacting with models and room installations.
Several parts of the exhibition were equipped with additional objects since its first presentation
in Frankfurt. This time, the detailed reproduction of the front projection rig finds its due place
at the entrance of the area concerning 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. Again, it was installed personally by
Kubrick's camera technician Joe Dunton.
Christiane Kubrick, Jan Harlan and the production designer Sir Ken Adam will be attending the press
conference at the cinema on 19 January 2005, 11am and will also address greetings to the audience
at the opening, Lichthof of the Martin-Gropius-Bau, 7pm. After Gereon Sievernich, director of the
Martin-Gropius-Bau, and Hans-Peter Reichmann, Deputy Director of the Deutsches Filmmusem, have
welcomed the guests, the following orators will speak: Karin Schubert, Mayor of Berlin, Hortensia Völckers,
Executive Board and Artistic Director of the German Federal Cultural Foundation, Dr. Hans-Bernhard Nordhoff,
