These five films grapple with questions of memory and knowledge and propose our city as seething networks of information within a rapidly expanding universe of details. Between them the five artists map out physical environments, model imaginary natural systems, track the movements of the stars across the sky, blur the boundaries between science fiction and unpick narratives from stories and images found online.

One-off Film Lounge Screening:
London Orbital Chris Petit and Iain Sinclair

This special Film Lounge screening will present Chris Petit and Iain Sinclair's film London Orbital, a mesmeric 76 minute documentary concerning the psychogeographical mappings of the world's largest motorway, the M25, using interviews, archival footage and voiceovers.

The film journeys back into the past to arrive at the future, enroute engaging with history and the occult, excavating the past through H.G Wells's, War of the Worlds and Bram Stoker's Dracula with musings on surveillance, shopping, terrorism and Essex gangsters.

Sign-up for the free screening here.

The Film Lounge will be open daily from 19 June - 18 July 11am - 6pm
With the exception of the following dates: 26 June and 3, 4, 17, 18 July
