Eindhoven Footnotes is a grassroots project that investigates the lived experiences of citizens in a technocratic city. Through the lens of design, writing, researching, archeology and artistic practice, the city will be dissected by an editorial board overseeing a group of participants of various backgrounds. There is a permanent, open source and public reference library and research space based at Onomatopee, which also serves as a base for our actions. It's from here that we expand out into the city.

The work carried out will result in five zines, with the project culminating in a publication with additional critical reflections on experiences and information gathered, from the editorial board, outside critics and commentators. Each zine has a theme that will be in line with, and overseen by, an editorial board member’s particular quality; say the built environment, big data or challenging power structures.

Themes:
Onomatopee 161.1 - Criticism in the City. Josh Plough, Onomatopee
Onomatopee 161.2 - FAUX-ETHNOGRAPHY / WEIRD ARCHAEOLOGY. Paolo Patelli, DAE
Onomatopee 161.3 - Not Knowing The City of Knowledge: Jacqueline Schoemaker, artist
Onomatopee 161.4 - A New Dark Age: Ben van de Broek, Erfgoehuis
Onomatopee 161.5 - Language in a Provincial Metropolis: Jan Schevers, TU/E

We hope the results of this project will stimulate a critical community in our smart city of Eindhoven while widening the participation with and interrogation of technology. Onomatopee acts as a vehicle and platform for progressive ideals: come and visit, join the debate.

 

Stylesheets have been created by the designer Yorit Kluitman. The aim of this is to bring the project together under a cohesive graphic direction. These stylesheets will be added to, layered upon and cut up with each new subject and approach.

Printing will take place at Onomatopee on our Risogrpagh and will be distributed for free across the city.

All Welcome!

This zine is the first of five publications exploring what it means to live in a city of the future. The topics covered, while local, tie into the wider global debate surrounding big data and citizenship.

From branding to surveillance, this zine analyses the rhetorics behind the people and companies shaping the urban environment of Eindhoven.
