Onomatopee – Miss Read


Onomatopee Projects is a curating and editorially led independent publisher and exhibition space that is particularly known for its self-initiated and transdisciplinary projects. Furthermore, Onomatopee also hosts the projects of progressive individuals as well as artist-run and institutional organizations.
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.

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. 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.
Onomatopee produces visual criticality and advocates progressive culture to inspire in-depth experiences and to provide critical nourishment for all.
Fieldwork Fieldwork for Future Ecologies

Bringing together contributions by artists, writers and theorists, ‘Fieldwork for Future Ecologies’ addresses the role that art practice and art-based research plays in expanding notions of fieldwork. At once a handbook for research and practice and a philosophical speculation, this book offers the unique opportunity to explore ways of working within vastly diverse climates and terrains using image, sound, movement and other sensing technologies. It also offers more creative and speculative interventions into the idea and location of the ‘field’ itself.

What does it mean to acknowledge one’s closeness to, enmeshment in or even kinship with the material world? And what does it mean to question family structures – the way they organise, coerce and make deviant certain lifeforms – and dwell in other possibilities of kin-making?
