FTHo is at the foreground of experimental art education and a place where students and a wider public can come to test the boundaries of what is teachable and knowable. Latham rejected traditional forms of learning and believed that the truth could not be taught. FTHo’s educational activities embody Latham’s ideas to teach the un-teachable, both by demonstrating their un-teachability and by presenting different ways of thinking about knowledge, education and artistic practice and the relative values of each of these things.
