All the Devils Are Here: An excavation of David Seabrook with Rachel Cooke, Iain Sinclair, Neil Belton and Paul Tickell
7 March @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| £5
Twenty years ago, in a series of mysterious, incandescent writings, David Seabrook told of the places he knew best, the declining resort towns of the Kent coast. His book All the Devils Are Here, published in 2002, was hailed as a furtive twitchy masterpiece but slipped out of print and its author died alone in his Canterbury flat in 2009. Championed by the likes of Rachel Cooke of the Observer, All the Devils Are Here has now finally been republished. Join Cooke and Seabrook’s former friends, admirers and collaborators, Iain Sinclair, Neil Belton and Paul Tickell for an evening exploring the brief strange life and brilliant work of David Seabrook in an event chaired by Travis Elborough.
‘All the Devils Are Here essays a kind of seaside situationism, predicated on the porousness of borders: between time and space, past and present, nature and culture.’ Brian Dillon
