The Last London, published by Oneworld in September 2017, is the ultimate book in a long series of urban wanderings and documentations by Iain Sinclair. The city is now somewhere else, both more and less than itself. And the old methods of transcription no longer play. Sinclair strikes out on a series of solitary walks and collaboratives expeditions to make a final reckoning with a capital stretched beyond recognition. Throughout this long project, begun in the 1960s, Sinclair has collaborated with film-makers, artists, musicians and curators. Inviting some of them to join him at Gallery 46 for THE HOUSE OF THE LAST LONDON is a way of recalling those collisions and celebrating future adventures. The process of launching books in locations relevant to their composition was always important. White Chappell, Scarlet Tracings was announced in a Victorian operating theatre. Downriver swam into existence with a haunted performance in Tower House, the ‘Monster Doss House’ of Jack London. Others, thanks to Paul Smith and King Mob, occupied slaughterhouse cellars, decommissioned synagogues, church towers and covered swimming pools.
