Prior to that he held a post as lecturer in the Department of Management Studies at UCT, as well as teaching part-time at CPUT.

He has been an invited guest lecturer at several institutions locally and internationally and is extremely active as a curator, having mounted over a dozen major shows at local institutions and galleries. As an arts practitioner he works in the field of performance art.

Lamprecht has published a number of academic articles on contemporary art and curatorship as well as being a frequent contributor to the public press on the subject of art.
