Sanz Serif, a makeshift nickname earned as a result of my typographic likes, is the umbrella under which I present the diverse facets of my work: academic research on architecture and urbanism, design speculations, graphic design, curatorial and editorial work, and writings developed individually or collaborately, in institutional settings or independently.

Current focus: Workscapes.

The Bezalel Academy’s department of architecture participated in the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale Sessions with a panel discussion on the agency of exhibitions in the production of critical knowledge in the fields of architecture and design.
Professor Barry Bergdoll of Columbia University presented his curatorial work on exhibitions at the Canadian Centre for Architecture and at the Museum of Modern Art, where he served as Philip Johnson Chief Curator from 2007 to 2013.

The presentation was followed by a short survey of some of the exhibits of the Biennale, and a discussion moderated by Tamar Shafrir of the Het Nieuwe Instituut. The panel guests discussed the following questions based on the presentations and their personal and professional experience:

- which formats and design typologies could foster the relation between research and display?
- how does one create an open-ended / ambiguous narrative in the curatorial process?
- how could the audience become an active agent in the process of knowledge creation in the exhibition?
- what is the relation between original objects of display and reproductions/images and its implication on curatorial decisions?
