Stretched City: Pushing Against the Current in the Last London

21 June 2017 6 – 8 pm
Darwin Lecture Theatre, University College London, Gower Street, London WC1 6XA

Iain Sinclair explores the condition of perceived groundlessness in the stretched city that London has become, by way of memory raids, recovered texts, visionary encounters and the constant pressure to step beyond our knowledge, beyond our restricted permissions. His project: to make London a map of what we need, what we love.

The lecture is the second to be held by Livingmaps in memory of the work of William Bunge, pioneer of expeditionary geography and author of ‘Fitzgerald: diary of a revolution.’ It inaugurates a series exploring what it means to be a Londoner today, as part of an initiative to create a Citizens Atlas of London.
