How cool does this exhibition look? How cool would it be to be there, ogling all those awesome Eurospy posters? Well, if you live in England--particularly if you live anywhere near Hatfield--then you can. And I envy you. A lot. In fact, when I posted about another UK event that made me jealous of all Brits this past summer and commented that there was one event I was dying to fly over there for, this is the one I was takling about: the Kiss Kiss Kill Kill exhibition and symposium.
exhibition, which runs through October 16, is what you see in those pictures. Galleries full of rare, awesome Eurospy poster art! Or, to put it in the academic terms preferred by its organizers, "The Graphic Art and Forgotten Spy Films of Cold War Europe." And what amazing art it is!
But there's more to Kiss Kiss Kill Kill than just an exibition. As I mentioned, there is also a symposium, and this is where it gets really good. This is what I wish I could afford to fly to England for. And this is what's happening this weekend. Here's the official description:
Okay, just that screening of Danger Route alone would make the trip worthwhile. But let's take a look at some of the topics under discussion.
The Kiss Kiss Kill Kill Symposium happens this Saturday at the University of Hertfordshire Art and Design Gallery, College Lane, Hatfield AL10 9AB. The exhibition runs through mid-October. Find full details on all events, including schedules and booking information, on The Kiss Kiss Kill Kill Archive. If you're in the area and you like spies at all, definitely go check this out! And tell them the Double O Section sent you. Because I'll be stuck here in America, jealously thinking of all the fun you're having over there this weekend. Turst me: this is the spy event of the year!
