Who we are

Currently based between Brussels and Milan, we combine our knowledge of art & design history with a critical and hands-on approach to develop narratives that focus on experimentation and cross-cultural pollination.

Parallel to commissioned works we also develop our own research projects under the pseudonym of studio d-o-t-s.
