press release

A large multi-media family-exhibition with screenings, photographs, memorabilia and all of his wonderful films. This more than extensive Charlie Chaplin exhibition will not only present the highlights of his career, but will also contextualize them. Home-videos, which have never been shown before, will learn you about Chaplins private life. Pictures from the Keystone album – largely closed until now –show Chaplin as a film-director. The visitor will be able to follow his development as an artist in his films and sees him conscientiously rehearsing his parts, always sharpening his key figure the vagabond Charlot, carefully observing role-models such as the Russian dancer Nijinski and always searching for the brilliancy he would finely reach. In conjunction with Musée Jeu de Paume (Paris) and Deichtorhallen Hamburg.
