'Jubilee Line Extension' curated by Dr Theo Kindynis
This month's exploration is curated by Dr Theo Kindynis, lecturer in criminology at Goldsmiths, whose research addresses the interrelationships between urban space, lawbreaking and social control and who has written about urban exploration.
The walk will divine the route of the Jubilee Line Extension beneath part of south east London by way of ventilation shafts and substations. Starting at Bermondsey station, we will circumnavigate the Rotherhithe peninsula. Along the way we will encounter a number of unusual and esoteric structures: telltale signs of otherwise invisible underground infrastructure.
Theo has suggested that ahead of the walk, participants read Kaika, M. and Swyngedouw, E. (2000) ‘Fetishizing the modern city: The phantasmagoria of urban technological networks’, Journal of Urban and Regional Research, 24(1): 120 – 138.
Please let us know if you have any difficulties in accessing the text.
The route is approximately 3 miles long and will involve a mixture of paved and unpaved paths. Please wear weather-appropriate clothes and footwear and bring water and snacks.
If you have any questions please do get in touch.
