On Onomatopee

Onomatopee Projects (founded and directed by Freek Lomme since 2006) is a curating and editorially led public gallery and publisher that is particularly known for their self-initiated and transdisciplinary projects. Furthermore, Onomatopee also hosts the projects of progressive individuals as well as artist-run and institutional organisations.

Inspired by a DIY-attitude and a hunger for critical elevation, Onomatopee Projects discusses and mediates a habitual visual sanctuary of pop culture, power and other environments of visual consciousnesses alike. Over the course of its existence, the exhibition space has attracted an annual average of between 5.000 and 25.000 visitors. Throughout the year they attend many international art book fairs and regularly organise shows abroad. Taking the hub of Eindhoven as a starting point to mount globally relevant programs of various sizes and interests, Onomatopee produces visual criticality and advocates progressive culture: all to inspire in-depth experiences and to provide critical nourishment for all of us.

Each project – consisting of a boundary pushing exhibition and an elevating publication– uses exceptional cultural attention as a source of wonder and knowledge that identifies a current experience of visual culture. Onomatopee’s award-winning publications and experimental exhibitions are known for their technically smart, well-balanced designed lay-out and progressive editing. Assembling surprising teams of artists, designers, academic thinkers, creative writers, architects, exhibition designers, graphic designers and more; the exhibitions’ curatorial formats challenge contemporary topics in unconventional ways.

Interns

We are interested for hands-on and thoughtful interns able to help out in the diversity of our workings.

The work spans the building of exhibitions, dissemination of publicity, operating as host / hostess to visitors, organising events, printing material on the risograph, selling books, doing graphic design, writing, photography and more. Work depending on skill and interest. We prefer able multitaskers. If interested, feel free to contact us. Please describe what you are good at, why you value what we do, what you wish to learn at Onomatopee and what you think you can contribute.

Since we have limited budget (an intern is not an employee) we do not encourage foreign enquiries, unless you have a grant. Eindhoven is expensive, since housing is difficult.

Volunteers

If you like us, big chance we like you! Feel free to step by and see how you can join in the sum!
