Fotini Lazaridou-Hatzigoga (*Thessaloniki/Greece) holds a diploma as architect/engineer from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and a master’s degree in design studies with a focus on history and theory of architecture from Harvard Graduate School of Design, Cambridge, MA/USA.
She works between the realms of art, architecture and urban research to explore the possibilities inherent in the intersections between social and physical spaces. Such context specificity finds working manifestation in curation, artistic production and collaborative organization, all of which point to an interest in structure as a dynamic of being and working together.
In 2006 Fotini co-founded PROGRAM – initiative for art and architecture collaborations in Berlin, and she was one of the organizers of HomeShop, an artist-run space in Beijing, active from 2008–2013. She has been part of the committee of The Public School Berlin since 2010 and has been co-running A Public Library since early 2015. In 2012–2013 she was a fellow at the Institut für Raumexperimente, Berlin University of the Arts.
