Matthew Flintham is an artist and writer specialising in the geographies of militarisation, security, surveillance and cinematic representation. He has a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins, an MA in Humanities and Cultural Studies from the London Consortium, and a PhD in Visual Communications from the Royal College of Art. His work intersects academic and arts practices, exploring speculative relationships between architecture, power and place, and the possibilities for arts methods to reveal hidden or immaterial relations in the landscape.
He is currently Leverhulme Artist-in-Residence in the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology (GPS) at Newcastle University, and a Research Associate at the Centre for Architecture and the Visual Arts (CAVA) at Liverpool University. His research is featured in the edited volume Militarized Landscapes: From Gettysberg to Salisbury Plain (Continuum, 2010), Tate Papers (Issue 17), and Emerging Landscapes: Between Production and Representation (Ashgate 2014). He lives in London.
