Fotini Lazaridou-Hatzigoga 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 living and working together.

Lazaridou-Hatzigoga 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. In 2006 she co-founded PROGRAM – initiative for art and architecture collaborations in Berlin/Germany, and she was one of the organizers of HomeShop, an artist-run space in Beijing/China, active from 2008–2013. She was part of the organizing committee of The Public School Berlin (2010–2015) and A Public Library (2015).
