The Incidental Person: Julika Gittner
August 2014 – 2015
Julika Gittner is currently undertaking a long-term residency with Flat Time House and Southwark Council Planning Department. Julika will be observing planning processes with a particular focus on regeneration and the ‘designing out’ of so-called anti-social activities. She will be looking at how abstract political decisions translate into physical realities in public spaces through a process involving meetings, workshops, and objects.
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.

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.
