Johnny Golding

Johnny Golding holds the Chair in Philosophy and Fine Art at the Royal College of Art. Golding’s work situates post-Newtonian analytics, new materialisms and poetics as ‘radical matter’, a practice-led intellectual encounter with contemporary philosophy, art and the wild sciences. Latest works include Entanglement: The Opera an opera in homage to Kurt Weill’s anti-fascist ‘White Cheese’, RCA, 2019; Of The Thick and the Raw: Cannibalising the 21st Century, OAR, Oxford, 2018. Texts and poetic-philosophic installations were most recently exhibited at the Venice Biennale, Vienna, Bogotá and Berlin. Resituating the multiversal as a particular form of dimensional and superpositional entanglement, Golding’s epistemological moves foreground erotic praxis, meta-mathematics, modern physics and the logics of sense. Forthcoming: Golding, Reinhart, Paganellli and Coster. Data Loam: Sometimes Hard, Usually Soft (De Gruyter: 2019). Runs with the wolves when not on a building site.
