U.K. home for Kubrick materials

Items to be stored at University of the Arts London

LONDON — The personal archives of Stanley Kubrick will be permanently housed at U. of the Arts London next summer.

The archives include scripts, treatments, drafts, correspondence, costumes, props, photography and film equipment. Many of the materials are part of a touring exhibition that has visited Frankfurt and Berlin and will continue to Melbourne and Rome before taking up permanent residence in London.

Kubrick’s family chose the location to ensure the widest access to students, researchers, aspiring filmmakers and the general public.

“His archives have a depth and breadth that we wanted to make available so that future generations have an understanding of the way that Stanley worked,” said his widow, Christine Kubrick. “Stanley spent most of his life in the U.K., and we are very happy that the archives will be located in London at a university that values, promotes and reflects the diversity of his interests.”

Steven Spielberg said he was pleased to hear of the archive’s new home. “In the whole history of movies, there has been nothing like Kubrick’s vision,” he said, adding that the archive “will ensure that his vision and legacy are kept alive.”

The materials — which include research documents, models, production schedules and books — will be stored in a new center on the campus of the London College of Communication at Elephant and Castle in south London. The LCC is one of the U. of the Arts London’s five colleges.

The UAL is embarking on an international campaign to raise the funds to accommodate, maintain and promote the Kubrick archive and is seeking an endowment to support it in perpetuity. It is planning an extensive series of events, exhibitions and film festivals to showcase the archive.
