Salon No. 5: (M)apping London
Thursday 30 May, 6:30pm
Maps and history may be the means by which we make best sense of and navigate the city but aren't both part fact and part fable?
London's long life has often been mapped, and, more recently 'apped' but even the most geographically accurate of these representations are only a snapshot of a particular time or a particular viewpoint.
Salon No 5: (M)apping London brings together two London writers, Rachel Litchenstein and Matt Brown, to present their own unique picture-memory-stories of the capital.
Matt Brown is the editor of The Londonist, London's pre-eminent city guide. An obsessive historian and archivist of the culture of the capital, he has written over 5,000 articles about all aspects of London life.
Rachel Litchenstein is a writer, artist, archivist and historian. Her first book, "Rodinsky’s Room", co-written with Iain Sinclair, began as a personal quest and evolved into a compelling psycho-geographical adventure. "Diamond Street: The Hidden World of Hatton Garden" is the second in a trilogy of non-fiction works exploring different London streets.
A soundtrack for the city will be provided by The Clerkenwell Kid.
£4/6 in advance from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/222239
£8 on the door (please note: previous Salons have sold out in advance)
