In the context of finissages for two major exhibitions and research projects—one exploring contemporary girlhood, cross-cultural feminism and the relationship between gender, politics and philosophy, the other exploring the notion of the public within the capitalist commons of the high street—public gallery and publisher Onomatopee Projects will launch the publications connected with these endeavours.
Using this momentum they will also launch other publications; including an instruction manual for open ended games, actions and interventions to untrain the body and recondition space; and a publication, which followed a previous exhibition, surveying a meditation on patterns on the fracture of three dimensionality and two dimensionality.
