David Hockney in A Bigger Splash (1974)
22.09.19 – 29.09.19
We have the pleasure to present the newly restored version of A Bigger Splash (1973) starring the artist David Hockney. The film recounts the story behind one of Hockney's most infamous work from 1972, Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures). The documentary drama dives into the creative crisis that Hockney faced after having been left by his ex-boyfriend, artist Peter Schlesinger. This viewing is part of our series Kunstnerportrettet at Kunstnernes Hus Kino where we present a life and work by an artist through films. Welcome!
