d-o-t-s is a nomadic curatorial practice founded by Laura Drouet FR and Olivier Lacrouts IT/FR. The duo’s investigations focus on the diverse and questionable relationships that – through design – human communities establish among themselves, with other animals, plants, and landscapes. Defined by the participatory and interdisciplinary approach, d-o-t-s’ work spans writing, exhibition-making, hands-on workshops and design commissions.
