Talk: Human-kind

14 June 2017


Object-oriented philosopher Timothy Morton talks with Paul Johnson about our relationship with human things - made, found, littered, discovered, crafted and discarded. Both consider how these 'things' gain a broader understanding of reality through the hand of an artist.

Timothy Morton is Rita Shea Guffey Chair in English at Rice University. He gave the Wellek Lectures in Theory in 2014 and has collaborated with Björk, Haim Steinbach and Olafur Eliasson. He is the author of Dark Ecology: For a Logic of Future Coexistence (Columbia, 2016), Nothing: Three Inquiries in Buddhism (Chicago, 2015), Hyperobjects: Philosophy and Ecology after the End of the World (Minnesota, 2013).

Paul Johnson (b. 1972) lives and works in London. Johnson has exhibited in institutions including, Focal Point Gallery (2015), Usher Gallery, The Collection Museum, (2013-2014), The Nunnery (2011-12), Saatchi Gallery (2010), CAPC, Bordeaux (2010), Armory Art Fair (2010), Ancient & Modern, London (2009) and at the Mizuma Gallery, Tokyo (2008).
