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. WE WILL INFECT THE CITY CENTRE, AS IT IS IN THIS PLACE THAT THE SILENT MAJORITY’S EXCLUSIVE CULTURE HAS ITS 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 HoopDavid BlameyNolwenn SalaunJennifer MoonGil & Moti, the Mona Lisa’s, Grupo Etcétera, The Temple of TeaseVanessa BrazeauToine KlaassenApparatus 22Jasmijn Visser and others.
