Design Displacement Group (DDG) was founded after a discussion between a group of designers and a social scientist from various disciplines, levels, cultures and nationalities in July 2014. Design Displacement Group is a collective exploring the future of design, both in practice and in thought. Recalling The Artist Placement Group lead by John Latham and Barbara Steveni, in the 60’s, DDG finds their notion of ‘placement’ to reposition the role of the artist within a wider social context. DDG shares an interest in this approach, but instead considers the idea of ‘dis’-placement. They exploit the axes of time, space and location to critically reflect back on the practices of (graphic) design today.
