BUT SET MARGINS' MUST BE SOMEONE
Indeed so. The Set Margins’ publishing house relies on the commitment and professionalism of Freek Lomme. Grown out of 20- years’ experience as a curator at artist-run centre Lokaal 01 and the Van Abbemuseum, as a founding director of art/design space and publisher Onomatopee projects, freelance curator, writer, lecturer and tutor. Freek also held board member positions with various local to international organizing bodies to independent production. Freek holds an MA in Art and Sciences, with a specialization in Art Policy and Cultural Identity.
Topical in his focus as well as typical in his practice, Freek explores forms of (self-) organization and communication with an independent angle, with a particular interest in identity politics.
Freek is curious about the input of practitioners and respects the risk they take to produce. He wants to bring attention to this. He dislikes designs’ technocratic authority and the invisible hand of capitalism in this, by nudging strategies to numb individuality and corrupt civil engagement. He provokes that anything not authentic, not individuating should be distrusted. The silent majority deserves more, so he believes. Reject easy confirmation, embrace your heart. Find others in otherness. Trust, but don’t rely. Getting that together is his mission. But it is up to him to feel that way. It is up to others to Set Margins’.
