Owen Hatherley in conversation with Ben Thompson, Thurs, 2nd May at PM Bookshop. Author Owen Hatherley has carved out a niche for himself as one of the UK’s foremost commentators on matters architectural and political; his work exists at the point where these intersect with aesthetics; and his latest chunky tome, a fascinating volume from Repeater Books, tackles all three in a work that is lively, trenchant, informative and never dull!

The Adventures of Owen Hatherley

Hatherley has a particular interest in modernist, brutalist architecture and also the Eastern Bloc countries as they attempt to survive after the fall of the Soviet Union. Those two interests often overlap and this book charts a number of journeys Hatherley has made through the countries affected, providing his thoughts, analysis, photographs and interpretations in a book which is bracing and yet often funny.

Book talk is at PM Bookshop, Thurs, 2nd May at 6pm sharp! Free entry.

Book available in store and online.
