WWW.ONEIRIC.SPACE is currently an online interview archive featuring intimate conversations about dream life with individuals from the worlds of art, culture, science and philosophy. 
      Each interview was designed to correspond to the content of the conversation and the dream-related material provided by the interviewee, creating a stand-alone cosmos. Interviews were published between 2019 and 2020. The website was last updated in 2020.

2022

⚫️ ONEIRIC.SPACE launched ‘Circulations (@ Sunrise)’, a newsletter series exploring forms of dream-sharing and how they’re entangled with aspects of social, cultural, and political life. What happens when dreams extend beyond our private worlds and connect with other dreams? Can sharing slivers of dream life with others deepen our understanding of larger patterns? We examine these questions, and others, through conversations and experiments with artists, researchers, and practitioners — often at sunrise, in an attempt to meet the rhythms of the dreaming mind. 

⚫️ Museum of Dreams x ONEIRIC.SPACE: Charmaine interviewed artist Bongsu Park about the Korean tradition of buying and selling dreams.

2021

⚫️ DADDY x ONEIRIC.SPACE co-hosted DREAMSCAPES, an evening of readings, screenings and discussions to celebrate DADDY’s 5-year anniversary and the launch of the Dreams Issue, at Callie’s in Berlin. We facilitated a conversation-slash-storytelling session with poet Sailesh Naidu and artist Sarah Martinus about dreams act as an avenue for imagining new futures and how we can hold intimate space to dream together.

⚫️ Artist-in-residence at Muzeum Susch / Temporars Susch researching and developing ONEIRIC.SPACE’s gatherings strand.

⚫️ For Muzeum Susch’s Magazine #2, Charmaine and Sandra Bradvic spoke to artist Itziar Okariz about using an open-ended approach to engaging with dreams and envisioning new modes of learning.

2020

⚫️ The Creative Independent x ONEIRIC.SPACE: Charmaine wrote a guide on starting (and keeping) a dream journal

⚫️ ONEIRIC.SPACE hosted an ‘Anxiety Release Reading’ at Haus am Lützowplatz in the frame of the ‘It was all a dream’ exhibition, curated by Laura Helena Wurth. In the lead up to the reading, we collected anonymous dream accounts where the prevailing feeling was ‘anxiety’. To explore the various shades of anxiety in a physical space and investigate their dream and waking forms within a group, we read a selection of dream submissions and invited four guests to reflect on the topic of anxiety and anxiety dreams: artist and scientist Mert Akbal; historian and writer Edna Bonhomme; poet and printer Nat Marcus; and photographer Charmaine de Heij.

2019

⚫️ ONEIRIC.SPACE launches as a digital publication, at The Black Lodge with readings and a conversation with dancer and choreographer Anna Nowicka about how embodying dreams through movement can start a dialogue between our dreaming and waking realities.
