Founding event for Incognitum Hactenus

Extending from Graham Harman’s reading of cult gothic novelist H.P. Lovecraft in his essay “On the Horror of Phenomenology” and the notion of Weird Realism, The Real Horror Symposium addressed this reciprocal relationship between the expression of horror and reality. The symposium showed that while many dialogues on horror overlap, merge, and diverge, there has not been a designated outlet for writers, artists, and curators that would give voice to this new strain of thinking. Thus Incognitum Hactenus came into being.

Real Horror Symposium included the London-based artist, writer, and curator participants Amanda Beech, Carl Neville, Ben Rivers, and Simon Clark – as well as U.S. writers Steven Shaviro and Ben Woodard.
