Lorenzo Pezzani convened the MA stream in Forensic Architecture 2016-22. An architect and a PhD graduate from the Centre, his work deals with the spatial politics and visual cultures of migration, with a particular focus on the geography and history of the ocean. Since 2011, he has been working on Forensic Oceanography, a collaborative project that critically investigates the militarized border regime in the Mediterranean Sea. Together with a wide network of NGOs, scientists, journalists and activist groups, he has produced maps, visualizations and human right reports that document the violence perpetrated against migrants at sea and challenge the regime of visibility imposed by surveillance means on this contested area.
