Abstract or Description
Leading London writers and cultural commentators Will Self, Iain Sinclair and Russell Brand explore the importance of the liminal spaces at the city’s fringe, it’s Edgelands, through the work of enigmatic and downright eccentric writer and researcher Nick Papadimitriou - a man whose life is dedicated to exploring and archiving areas beyond the permitted territories of the high street, the retail park, the suburban walkways.
John Rogers’ film looks at the city we deny and the future city that awaits us. The screening will be followed by an ‘Edgelands’ panel, with panelists including Andrea Phillips, Goldsmiths College (Chair), John Rogers, Filmmaker, Will Self, writer and critic, and Iain Sinclair, writer, looking at art, public space and the potentials hidden in the forgotten corners of the city.
