Lorenzo Pezzani (Italy/UK) is an architect and researcher. He is currently Lecturer at Goldsmiths, where he leads the MA studio in Forensic Architecture. He researches spatial politics and visual cultures of migration, with a particular focus on the geography of the ocean. Since 2011, he has been working on Forensic Oceanography, a collaborative project that critically investigates the militarised border regime in the Mediterranean Sea, and co-founded the WatchTheMed platform. Together with an extensive network of NGOs, scientists, journalists, and activist groups, he has produced maps, video animations, installations, and human rights reports that attempt to document and challenge the ongoing death of migrants at sea. His work has been used as evidence in courts of law, published across different media and academic outlets, and exhibited widely.
