James Bond exhibition shows original props in Bochum

The fictitious agent is said to have been born in Wattenscheid in 1920

Autor: Katharina Hogrebe

Until now, only true Bond fans have known that Britain’s best-known secret agent originally came from Wattenscheid, a district of Bochum. His place of birth is divulged in “James Bond: The Authorized Biography of 007”, which was written in 1973 by someone who used to be a close colleague of Bond author Ian Fleming. Now, Bond’s home city wants to make sure that more people become aware of this connection by staging an exhibition. Entitled “In geheimer Mission – Der Spion, der aus Wattenscheid kam” (“On a Secret Mission – The Spy who came in from Wattenscheid”), the exhibition will show original props from the blockbuster Bond films, including special cars such as the Sunbeam Alpine SII from “Dr. No” and the white Lotus Esprit from “The Spy Who Loved Me”. From 1 February to 31 March 2019. The exhibition, which covers an area of around 500 square meters, and which will be staged in an empty shop space in the inner city, also includes a one man helicopter from “You Only Live Twice”, a jetpack from “Fireball” and costumes and scripts. The supporting programme of events includes lectures such as “Myths and Facts from Goldfinger. James Bond in the Cross-Hairs of Physics” (in German).
