Bottomlayer descends on China! (again)

As you can read in the introductory note to this blog, I initially set up bottomlayer back in 2006 as a platform to experience, analyse and document extreme urban conditions. And although over the past years attempts to respond to this challenge meant mainly getting lost in a random god-forgotten part of London, every now and then comes an opportunity for a truly fresh encounter.

Next week, thanks to the organizational efforts of, amongst others, Joaquim Barreto and Kuba Kristo, a three-person bottomlayer exploration group (Zuza Malicka, Kuba Kristo and me) will have a chance to immerse deep into some of the most extreme urban environment on Earth – the Pearl River Delta region in South China. The itinerary includes Hong Kong, Macau and Guangzhou for a start, and is still pretty much open, allowing for some spontaneous changes of route and unexpected trip development, in line with the basic rules of psychogeography.

So, in the next couple of weeks bottomlayer will try to give you an extensive, first-hand report on getting carried away by some radical Asian street life, with special tips on how (not) to get lost in a foreign city. And for now, we’re OFF……

PS Special thanks for the Macau Government and Lufthansa Systems for (unconsciously) sponsoring our journey.
