Join us for a special screening of Stanley Kubrick’s dystopian classic A Clockwork Orange, which features an Edward Bullmore painting in one of the film’s futuristic lounge scenes.

Film screening: Invisible Adversaries (‘Unsichtbare Gegner’, 1977), Directed by VALIE EXPORT
Adam Art Gallery
Invisible Adversaries is the first of a series of feature-length films directed by Austrian artist VALIE EXPORT from the late 1970s onwards. This is a rare opportunity to see how this visionary artist adapts her unique language of montage, still photography, and performance to narrative-based cinema.
