Onomatopee Projects, founded in 2006 and directed by Freek Lomme since, is a curating and editorial led public gallery and publisher that is particularly known for their self-initiated, transdisciplinary projects. Furthermore, they host projects to 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 consciousness’s alike.
Over the course of its 10-year 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 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.

Each project – consisting of a boundary pushing exhibition and an elevating publication– transfers 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 design and 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. Through the release of critical and independent visual culture within the experience economy, they established a safe haven for critical thought and refuge for poetic experience.




Books are distributed via the best possible companies covering Australia, North America, Western Europe, Mid/ North Europe and the South of Europe. Onomatopee also reaches out to specialised shops that directly supply the areas uncovered by these distributors. Evidently, the world can also purchase books online via Onomatopee’s web-shop. Finally, through visiting many international art book fairs, lecturing internationally and (co-) organising events abroad, Onomatopee is out there.

In parallel to this distribution, Onomatopee is also engaged with and values small press and the making of zines. This primarily due to the fast pace, the creative opportunities of craft in low print-runs, the possibility of being more radical or speculative in content, design and tone and possibly being more doubtful too. Zines are often printed with the Onomatopee risograph, sometimes in connection with bigger projects, or else just spontaneously.
