„The Sea“

The sea has inspired artists, writers, and thinkers for centuries; but what has changed in our view of the sea since the canonical seafaring novels and paintings of the 19th century? In the June issue of Texte zur Kunst, dedicated to the mysteries and violence of the deep, we examine the sea from a media-theoretical perspective as well as from the perspective of current political and ecological catastrophes. For this issue, the theoretical texts are punctuated by photo essays by four artists who have dealt with the sea as a biosphere as well as a transit system for container vessels. In short, we realize just how important it is to look at the sea again, and again.
