The Showroom

Incursions, Departures: 'londonunderlondon' and 'On Vanishing Land'


In December 2019, The Showroom presented the first combined playback of audio-essay works by Justin Barton and the late Mark Fisher. It was then followed by this discussion between Barton, Dalia Neis (voice in londonunderlondon) and Pete Wiseman (musician on On Vanishing Land), with a Q&A and general discussion. It was an opportunity to think collectively about the ideas and techniques involved in the composition of these works – as Barton describes, a chance ‘to explore what might exist beyond the flood barrier of ordinary capitalist reality’.
