The Showroom

Justin Barton

Justin Barton (b.1962) is a philosopher and writer. He has published academic philosophical articles and has collaborated on projects with artists and theorists. With Mark Fisher he made the audio-essays londonunderlondon (2005) and On Vanishing Land (2013). He once spent two years living in a tent in woodlands around London while working at a college in Covent Garden, and he has travelled to rarely visited places such as the mountains of Tuva and the forests of northwest Patagonia.

In December 2019, The Showroom presented Incursions, Departures - the first combined playback of the audio-essay works, followed by a discussion with Justin Barton, Dalia Neis and Pete Wiseman.
