Kubrick’s 2001.
50 Years A Space Odyssey

Deutsches Filmmuseum, Frankfurt/Main

– 23 September 2018



On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of its first screening, the German film museum in Frankfurt/Main is presenting a unique worldwide exhibition on the cult 1968 film “2001: A Space Odyssey” directed by Stanley Kubrick.


As the Deutsches Filmmuseum says on its website: “ Kubrick’s film has long since become a classic in film history, revolutionising the genre and influencing the style of countless productions.

The film has lost none of its relevance even 50 years after its premiere. In fact, you could say artificial intelligence in the shape of HAL foretold the likes of Alexa, Siri and Co. today. On the occasion of the film’s anniversary, with props, models, costumes, photographs and shooting plans taking centre stage in a special show, the German film museum has turned these cinematic accoutrements into a form of total artwork. The show encourages an examination of the film’s origins, its role as an artistic source of inspiration and its utopian visions in the context of modern technology. The key question is: “How did Kubrick’s vision of the future develop and to what extent was it achieved?”
