Monday, 4 December 2023, 12 am, at Foyer of Palazzo Canavée, USI Academy of Architecture, Mendrisio, the Equal Opportunities Service and Volta Group organise a conversation with Dr. Torsten Lange and Khensani Jurczok-de Klerk.

Torsten Lange is Lecturer in Cultural and Architectural History at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Switzerland. He studied architecture as well as the history and theory of architecture at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and The Bartlett School of Architecture in London, where he received his PhD in 2015. His work focuses on the conditions underpinning the production of the built environment during late socialism and on writing histories of queer spatial practices.

Khensani Jurczok-de Klerk is an architectural researcher, designer and performer from Johannesburg. At the centre of her practice is an interest in spatial storytelling and commitment to spatial education. She is the founder of Matri-Archi(tecture), an association based between Switzerland and South Africa that hosts a network of spatial practitioners dedicated to the development of African spatial education, offering a site for artistic collaboration through design, art and architectural research projects. She is currently conducting a PhD as a fellow at the Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture (gta) ETH Zürich.
