Coming to the Design Museum in 2019, Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition reconnects with the roots of the filmmaker's inspiration by showcasing pieces from the director's archives for the first time in the UK. His films amazed the entire world, but it's surprising how much of his legacy lies closer to home.
The director's brother-in-law, Jan Harlan, explained how much Kubrick relied on his home in Hertfordshire: 'Everything from the Sixties onwards was shot as near as possible to St Albans', he said. 'For Full Metal Jacket he recreated Vietnam within a 30-mile distance. It was around the corner and he would then bring in the right kind of palm tree, he would transform the place. Trying to get inside Stanley Kubrick’s head is what this exhibition will try to do and show how adventurous he was in terms of design, in terms of photography'.
