Directed by Stanley Kubrick and developed in collaboration with writer Arthur C. Clarke, 2001: A Space Odyssey was released in 1968 before the first moon landing, and is possibly one of the most influential movies of all time. It has become increasingly relevant since its 1968 release, making a deep cultural impact on how we visualise human and technological progress. 2001 is a philosophically profound and visually stunning piece of film making which never ceases to incite debate.

    Director: Stanley Kubrick

    “At last!  The dense, intense, detailed, and authoritative saga of the making of the greatest motion picture I’ve ever seen, 2001: A Space Odyssey.  I now have reason to see Kubrick’s ‘proverbial “really good” science fiction movie’ another 200 times.  Michael Benson has done the Cosmos a great service.” (Tom Hanks)

The MoMI exhibition (located next to the Kaufman Astoria Studios in Queens) explores Kubrick’s influences, his obsessive research and his innovative production process in envisioning a world of the future – the year 2001 from the viewpoint of the 1960s. It continues to exert influence on cinema, design, painting, architecture, and advertising.
