Explore Everything: Talk with Bradley L. Garrett and Will Self
Part of the Urban Wandering – Film and the London Landscape season at the Barbican
Plotting expeditions from London, Paris, Berlin, Detroit, Chicago, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, Bradley L. Garrett has evaded urban security in order to experience the city in ways beyond the boundaries of conventional life. He calls it ‘place hacking’: the recoding of closed, secret, hidden and forgotten urban space to make them realms of opportunity.Explore Everything is an account of the author’s escapades with the London Consolidation Crew, an urban exploration collective. The book is also a manifesto, combining philosophy, politics and adventure, on our rights to the city and how to understand the twenty-first century metropolis. This October, Bradley L. Garrett will discuss his new book Explore Everything with author Will Self at The Barbican as part of their Urban Wandering – Film and the London Landscape season. Influenced by psychogeography and other urban theory, Garrett and the London Consolidation Crew have explored buildings, sewers and bridges in London and beyond.
