Fake News: The British Cinema Papers

Tim Brown, Anna Deamer

Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition

Abstract

An exhibition of re-created newspaper front pages as they appeared in a selection of British film thrillers. Complemented by a selection of original newspaper props from A Clockwork Orange (with thanks to the SK FilmArchives LLC, Warner Bros. and University of the Arts London). With their patina and provenance, these original props from Stanley Kubrick’s legendary 1971 film, possess the quality of a sacred object or holy relic. Re-creating the newspaper action props involved working closely with specialist film/tv graphics company Data Reprographics. They were recreations of film ‘action props’ that no longer exist; made decades ago and glimpsed on screen for a couple of seconds, before frequently being discarded after filming; props without physical properties. In a kind of Reconstructive Archaeology, Fake News aimed to render a fictional body of work actual, with the new papers existing somewhere between art work, prop and reconstruction.
