Threads of Practice
A lecture from Ilze Wolff
Co-director of Wolff Architects
Monday, October 7, 6:00pm
Betts Auditorium, School of Architecture
Ilze Wolff co-directs Wolff Architects with Heinrich Wolff, a practice concerned with an architecture of consequence. In 2017, she received an International Prize for Scholarly Works in Modern and Contemporary Art and Architecture in Rome for her book Unstitching Rex Trueform, the story of an African factory. In 2018, she was shortlisted for the Architectural Review’s Moira Gemmil award, and between 2017-2019 she was a fellow at the University of the Western Cape’s Centre for Humanities Research. She co-founded Pumflet, a publication for art and architecture, which has since received institutional support from William Kentridge's Centre for the Less Good Idea, the Chicago Architecture Biennial, and formed part of the Publishing Against the Grain exhibition at the Zeitz MOCAA Museum. Through the practice and with her colleagues at Wolff, their space in Bo-Kaap has hosted exhibitions, interventions, publications, and talks in collaboration with artists, activists, and scholars, developing an enduring public culture around the city, space, and personhood.
