The Bad Vibes Club
Flat Time House is hosting The Bad Vibes Club in 2017-18
The Bad Vibes Club is a forum for research into negative states. Founded by Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau in 2014, The Bad Vibes Club has hosted a lecture programme and reading group at Open School East, produced one-off events at the Barbican, ICA and CCA Derry, and produced a long term research project, Interruptions, with Field Broadcast in 2016.
Whilst at Flat Time House, Beth Bramich and Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau will host 6 months of reading groups and a number of live events touching on a variety of themes: force feeding, fire, women's time and resentment.

Constellations - Artist Announcement
October 2017 – May 2018
A new collaboration between UP Projects and Flat Time House.
We are excited to announce that the following artists will be joining Constellations as members of the working group: Beverley Bennett, Connie Butler, Ting-Ting Cheng, Edmund Cook, Carla Cruz, Sophie Hoyle, Gal Leshem and Camara Taylor. Running from October 2017 – May 2018, the group will explore different methods and approaches to artistic research and community-orientated practice, through a series of day-long monthly workshops hosted by Flat Time House. Alongside the workshops, there will also be two public events, the form and content of which will be shaped and determined by the group collaboratively.
Flat Time House (FTHo) was the studio home of John Latham (1921-2006), recognised as one of the most significant and influential British post-war artists. In 2003, Latham declared the house a living sculpture, naming it FTHo after his theory of time, ‘Flat Time’. Until his death, Latham opened his door to anyone interested in thinking about art. It is in this spirit that Flat Time House opened in 2008 as a gallery with a programme of exhibitions and events exploring the artist's practice, his theoretical ideas and their continued relevance. It also provides a centre for alternative learning, which includes the John Latham archive, and an artist's residency space.
