August at Flat Time House
Summer School is a programme of workshops, discussions and presentations across the five weekends of August. Flat Time House will open its indoor and outdoor spaces for conversation, creating a temporary community that will look at Flat Time House's relationship to a wider social, political and geographical context.
Using the house as a base to explore the local area, workshops will take the form of group storytelling and collective mappings that aim to discover the hidden narratives and politics of the surrounding streets. Discussions will draw on the nature of the house as a place for living and working, where art is made as well as shown, and where the building, the works, and the people within it are constantly reactive to each other.
All sessions are free and you can attend just one or all of them however booking is essential. Everyone is welcome though anyone under 16 should come with an adult.

Deadline: September 8 2014

NOIT – 2
Published June 2014
Flat Time House is pleased to announce the publication of the second issue of NOIT, FTHo's creative journal published in conjunction with Camberwell Press. NOIT–2, guest edited by Lisa Le Feuvre, Head of Sculpture Studies at the Henry Moore Institute, considers how burning, an action predominant in Latham's ideas, has been deployed by artists in various ways.
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, John 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.
