About Onkar Kular

Onkar Kular’s work investigates how contemporary design practice, its processes, methodologies and outputs, can be used as a medium to engage with and question the understanding of cultural and popular issues. His work uses a range of different media, appropriate to the particular research project to include new objects, films, events, performances and installations, and is disseminated internationally through exhibitions, workshops, lectures, film festivals and publications. His work is in the collection of the CNAP, France.

Recent exhibitions include Crafting Narrative a Crafts Council Touring Exhibition, guest curated by Kular the exhibition investigated the role of narrative and narrative structures within the design and production of artifacts. In May 2014, he designed and curated The Citizens Archive of Pakistan, bringing together a variety of personal stories to critically revisit the history of the Partition today. Other notable exhibitions include Risk Centre, at Arkitekturmuseet in Stockholm on constructed environments used for risk and safety education and I Cling To Virtue, with Noam Toran and Keith R. Jones, recently exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, Antwerp which presented a mixed-media collection of objects, narrative texts and videos that reveal the intricate trajectories of the Lövy Singh clan, a fictional East London family of mixed descent.

Previous to his appointment at HDK, Onkar was a tutor on the Design Products course at the Royal College of Art. For a period of eight years, Onkar ran the experimental design programme Platform 13, an interdisciplinary platform that challenged and explored the use and impact of design within the developments of new technologies, political and economic systems, culture and society. Onkar Kular was a Stanley Picker Fellow in Design from 2014-2016 at Kingston Univerity, UK.
