Julika Gittner


Julika Gittner is an artist and an architect, educated at Goldsmiths College and the AA.
Julika is the first year studio master on the BA in Architecture at the University of Cambridge and teaches a theoretical course on the history of London’s architecture at Central Saint Martins.
Her design practice includes the commission of an interior design for the auditorium of the Palmach Museum in Tel Aviv (in collaboration with R.Segal and Z.Hecker) as well as the design of a mobile gallery space for a secondary school in East London. Her art works have been shown internationally and use sculpture, performance and video to investigate forms of artistic production and display outside the purpose built gallery space. Her project ‘Economic Units’ was shown as part of the Venice Bienale 2008 and she has recently completed a commission for the exhibition ‘Urban Visions’ at the Zedai Art Museum, Shanghai. She is also the curator of a number of exhibition projects which explore the social role of art and architecture including ‘The Stones of Menace’ (2010) which investigated artists’ as well as architects’ perspectives on New Brutalism and most recently a one day event at the Whitechapel Gallery ‘All that Glitters is NOT Institution’ (2010) that set out to test the institutional context of art and mental health.
