SHIFT! RE-APPROPRIATED

Shift! is re-appropriating, re-claiming, re-inventing.

For this Shift! project, designers and artists from around the world were invited to re-appropriate the publication itself. Detritus of previous Shift!s were bagged up and given to contributors who were then asked to deconstruct, re-interpret, and re-invent earlier Shift! incarnations. These “new designs” could take any shape or form and serve any function, under one condition – that nothing else be used other than the Shift! material.

The SHIFT! RE-APPROPRIATED publication takes the form of these “new designs”, all available for purchase through the Shift! mail order catalogue and this website. The project features contributions by artists and designers from around the world, as well as work by BA and MA students who participated in two SHIFT! RE-APPROPRIATED workshops (run by Anja Lutz and Anna Gerber) held at London College of Printing and Central Saint Martins in London.

SHIFT! RE-APPROPRIATED products include everything from “Entertainment”, to „Fashion“, „Food & Drink“, „Gardening“, „Homeware“, and „Services“:
