Onomatopee

By 03-05-2015

The Eindhoven-based initiative Onomatopee is – in its own words – “a movement by and for anyone interested in negotiating and establishing our cultural future via design’s playful, political practice.”

Founder Freek Lomme: “Onomatopee has three modes of production. Research Projects – self-initiated and self-produced – constitute Onomatopee’s core. These projects establish a public sphere of negotiation relating to our daily surroundings. The NEST Projects – initiated by Onomatopee on a project basis – thematically show and frame new, young and local art and design talents. Cabinet Projects – collaborations, both artistically and in terms of production – with other institutions or individuals who share our passion to playfully enact design’s criticality.”

“Each project consists of an exhibition, which allows our experience to become durable, and a publication that gives context to our imaginations. Projects expand upon both real-time cases and abstract thought. An average of 23.000 people engage with the Onomatopee project-space in Eindhoven annually, whilst the publications are distributed via bookshops, fairs and presentations around the world.”
