Leader: Jakob Lusensky
Jakob is a Jungian psychoanalyst in-training working in private practice in Berlin, Germany. His field of research and writing focuses on fields such as branding, creativity, globalization and cultural critique from a psychoanalytical perspective.

Leader: Evangelos Tsempelis
Evangelos has a background in history and international relations. He holds degrees from Tufts University and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy in Boston Massachusetts. A few years ago, Evangelos moved to Zurich with his family in order to train in Jungian psychoanalysis. This step was motivated by a life-long urge to bridge his interests in history, politics and contemporary society with questions of meaning and healing as they relate to the realm of individual and collective subjectivity.
“The Zurich Lab supports and implements initiatives that respond to contemporary social challenges by bringing psychoanalysis to the streets. We fire-start debates. We curate and publish psychoanalytically inspired writing. We engage with global culture with a view to promoting experiences of breadth and depth.
TZL helps individuals and organizations to acquire a more active and creative relationship with the deeper contexts in which they subsist and from which they operate. We assist our partners in identifying and transcending underlying conflicts that hinder healing and transformation.”
