In the context of finissages for two major exhibitions and research projects—one exploring contemporary girlhood, cross-cultural feminism and the relationship between gender, politics and philosophy, the other exploring the notion of the public within the capitalist commons of the high street—public gallery and publisher Onomatopee Projects will launch the publications connected with these endeavours.

Using this momentum they will also launch other publications; including an instruction manual for open ended games, actions and interventions to untrain the body and recondition space; and a publication, which followed a previous exhibition, surveying a meditation on patterns on the fracture of three dimensionality and two dimensionality.


Onomatopee 142 – We Are The Market!
As an alternative, focused on a public service for the interest-less imagination which is exclusive to the arts, Onomatopee went on to the streets in action against mollycoddling and in defence of an inclusive world: in the ultimate stimulation of possibility.

Curated and edited by Freek Lomme and Josh Plough.

Onomatopee 150 – Sense & Sensibility
A platform for various artists and writers to explore contradictions and oppositions by reflecting upon gender issues, contemporary girlhood and object-subject relations. Featuring Mandy Roos, Gabriel Ann MaherOlle LundinJanina FryeVirginie Gauthier, Alicja Melzacka, Charlotte van BuylaereRoberto PerezCarly RoseDaantje BonsCamille Auer, Nasty Women and others. Curated and edited by Pernilla Ellens.

Onomatopee 144 – The Ghost of Weaving
This project concerns the visual poetry that is released within the woven patterns’ ambivalence between fixation by rule and the dynamics of life; on the fracture of materialistic realism and the limits of the power we hold in our hands.
