Graham Harman: Objects and the Arts

ICA London

Published on 27 Mar 2014

Contemporary American philosopher Graham Harman, the leading figure associated with the metaphysical movement object-oriented ontology, delivers his lecture Objects and the Arts.

In this lecture the founder of object-oriented philosophy will discuss the implications of this philosophy for the arts. After explaining why objects are withheld from all direct access, and explaining further that the arts have always been under pressure to recognise this fact, Harman will develop further the relation between philosophy and the arts demonstrated in his Documenta 13 catalogue essay The Third Table.

Graham Harman is Distinguished University Professor at the American University in Cairo. He is the author of eleven books, most recently Bells and Whistles: More Speculative Realism (2013).
