Presentation followed by a Q&A with Rory Hyde, V&A curator of contemporary architecture and urbanism. Organised by V&A.

The work of visionary sci-fi author J.G. Ballard (1930-2009) came to define the deranged imagination of the 20th century, influencing art, design, architecture and cinema. Join Simon Sellars (publisher of ballardian.com, and co-editor of Extreme Metaphors: Interviews with J.G. Ballard) for a multimedia excursion through the alternate history of Ballard’s impact on film. Find out how Ballard predicted the death of cinema, and his early work, with the rise of CCTV. Enter the occult terminal zone of British Public Service Announcements, one of the many forks in the Ballardian multiverse. And immerse yourself in the bizarre world of ‘vapourware’ adaptations, where names such as Richard Gere and Samuel L. Jackson grapple with Ballard… and lose.
