The necessity to try, contest and disseminate is evident in the work of Freek Lomme, curator, poet, writer and founder of exhibition space and publisher Onomatopee (Eindhoven, NL). He produces a culture wherein poetic experiment and critical research flourish, and shares this on a public mission.
Onomatopee was set up by the wish to produce a critical environment. To complement the experience of exhibitions, Onomatopee also engages in publishing. Locally based, Onomatopee became an international, trans-disciplinary platform for visual criticality in the experience economy: a safe haven for critical thought and a refuge to poetic experience.
In this presentation, Freek will speak about the motivating force connecting exhibiting and publishing that feeds into the organisation at large, then move towards the mobilisation of energetic perspectives of various involved professionals, before proceeding to speak of balancing idealism and the check of reality, and some related aspects.
