Shapeshifters & Spacebenders is an Amsterdam based collective initiated by Suraya Latul and Julius Dusch. The collective develops design methods which manifest in collaborative exhibitions, publications and programs. We believe design is a social practice: it is collaboration between widely informed groups that enables projects to become more entangled and grounded. Through initiating conversation, facilitating agency, and prompting we look for ways to navigate the social aspects of spatial design, research and programming. By reframing our relationship with material, object and landscape we aim to work towards a more horizontal and integral design.
