WE ARE THE MARKET!

‘WE WANT INCLUSIVITY, AND WE ARE HERE TO TAKE IT!’


AN INTERNATIONAL AVANT-GARDE OF STYLE-MAKERS WILL ENTER THE STREETS OF EINDHOVEN TO HELP BRING THE RIGHT, INCLUSIVE VIBES TO LIFE. THEY WILL INFECT THE CITY CENTRE, AS IT IS IN THIS PLACE WHERE WE, THE SILENT MAJORITY, HOLD OUR CULTURALLY EXCLUSIVE, IMPERIALIST BASE.
THEY WILL PERFORM UNANNOUNCED, AND DELIVER ACHIEVEMENTS RANGING FROM POLITICAL ACTIONS; TO THEATRICAL PERFORMANCES; TO SPATIAL INTERVENTIONS; AS WELL AS OTHERS THAT WILL ENGAGE THE PUBLIC IN THEIR OWN SEGREGATED ARENA. IT IS HERE THAT WE MUST BUILD DEMOCRATIC INCLUSIVITY BY WIDENING THE OFFER. READ THE FULL MISSION STATEMENT HERE.

MEANWHILE, AT THE ONOMATOPEE PROJECT SPACE, THESE "ACHIEVEMENTS" WILL BE DISPLAYED CONTINUOUSLY AS A FILM SHOWING THE ACTUAL WORKS, AND FORMATTED IN THE STYLE OF NEWS BROADSHEETS. IN PARALLEL, TO SERVE FURTHER ENLIGHTENMENT, SOME THOUGHTFUL REVIEWERS WILL BE HANGING OUT AT THE BAR, BOTH WILLING AND ABLE TO ENGAGE IN FURTHER SHARPENING OF THE STUFF THAT BEHOLDS US IN THE CHAINS OF THE CAPITALIST COMMONS.

First achievements have happened and are on show, more are to follow.
Featuring: Harmen de Hoop, SnodevormgeversDavid BlameyNolwenn SalaunJennifer Moon & Laub, Su TomesenMartin Krenn, MG&M Collective (Mosab Anzo, Gil & Moti), the Mona Lisa’s, Grupo Etcétera, The Temple of TeaseVanessa BrazeauToine Klaassen, Jasper GriepinkApparatus 22Jasmijn Visser , Cindy Moorman and others.


The theory-sparked bartenders, offering enlightening conversations over heavy drinks, include Robert-Jan Gruijthuijzen, Michel van Dartel, Lietje Bauwens & Wouter De Raeve, Berit Fischer, Dirk Vis, Petra Van Brabandt and others yet to be announced!

SENSE & SENSIBILITY

What a girl wants – what a girl needs


Logo design by Virginie Gauthier


September 2017- January 2018

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 Buylaere, Roberto Perez, Carly Rose, Daantje Bons, Camille Auer, Nasty Women and others. 

It’s because feminism has become a fashionable commodity now, that we’re in desperate need of a more inclusive and varied reflection on contemporary girlhood, cross-cultural feminism, and the relationship between gender, politics and philosophy. Sense and Sensbility wishes to explore oppositions and contradictions, in image and text, in theory and in visual modes of culture here and now. We try to make sense by getting together during changing situations, rather than define a status quo, and we try to be sensible, by embracing diversity within the interpretation of the theme.

The Girls’ Room

Sense & Sensibility #1 – Mandy Roos


’Softie wanted more’ (2017) by Mandy Roos and Victoria Ledig.

Opening September 2nd, 4 PM

A girls’ room is a magical place. The typical girly bedroom is a safe space, mostly constructed from cinematic images and teenage dreams. Here, a girl can be alone and read, look in the mirror, rebel and express, think out loud — all the while being pressured from the brutally dangerous outside world. It is the perfect hideaway to dream away. The contrast between the lush pink space (where a girl can act and think freely, and where her identity can take shape) and the current political climate where protesters get arrested, LGBTQA-rights are at stake and violent cis-male supremacy is reigning the world is dazzling. 

You’ve been a very very bad girl, now go to your room!

“I read the comments. I shouldn’t have read the comments, why do I read the comments”

Erik Vermeulen



Zine launch and opening: September 2nd, 16:00

“Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ’my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.’”
― Isaac Asimov           

In 1835, the French philosopher Alexis de Tocqueville wrote "De la démocratie en Amérique", it describes democracy as a system in which everyone is promised happiness, but where there is hardly any room for strong, exalted, and glorious feelings; such as pride, heroism, glory and honour. In a time where the border between politics and entertainment is challenged, social media provides a platform where one can express these feelings - more or less anonymously. One can thus form an exclusive social group, in which bigotry, racism and discrimination against others are openly expressed. Populist politics loves to play with this.

Artist Erik Vermeulen got fed up with the xenophobic comments on social media, and how the messages on that medium are becoming more and more simplistic. The Brussels attacks on March 22, 2016 were the turning point for Erik. He started looking for a way to depict the underlying dynamics of social media and populism, by collecting the comments that irritated him; he also made a private collection of the commentator’s profile pictures.Who are the people behind these vile messages? And why would these people choose, for example, a lama as a profile picture? The ignorant could maybe become human again.

the parts and the sum

Encompassing the crafting of scale, perspective and proportionality in the anthropocene while featuring the work of Studio Mieke Meijer.
Studio Mieke Meijer


September 2 - Oktober 29
Official opening to be announced

The geometry, the structure, the materiality, the texture, the finishing; all contest the reciprocity of construction and detail through the rules of the properties themselves. Studio Mieke Meijer (Mieke Meijer and Roy Letterlé) construct aesthetics with the utmost necessity. With industrial knowledge, they return to a more manual craft in order to accommodate all the facets of their work. As they move closer, things get more specific. As man takes control in the anthropocene, do we actually get closer to an existential quality? 

Perspective, scale and proportionality are key to the work of Studio Mieke Meijer. In the exhibition at Onomatopee, its design will release different perspectives onto the work, stimulating an analytical disposition to trigger your awareness of the properties concerned. Experience and information are in a constant loop with one-another. 

This exceptional exhibition, inspired by the practice of the Studio, triggered a further, more abstract and critical exploring of the construction of aesthetics on the fracture of architecture and interior design, the interior object as a research proposition and the fundamental case of aesthetic approximation. The visual fabrication of aesthetics will be targeted both in the graphic transfer of the photographed work in the publication as well as in the accompanying texts
