Our Seas Are What We Make Of Them (Goethe Institut Amsterdam)

2 April 2021 - 11 April 2021


The Goethe Institute invites you to Our Seas Are What We Make Of Them, a group exhibition with a public program that will take place from April 2 to 11, 2021 at the Laurel Project Space in Amsterdam.

For this occasion, artists from different parts of the world have come together in the historic rooms of the former telephone service in Watergraafsmeer. This area is a polder that was created in 1629 after the Diemermeer was dyed and is closely linked to the water management and colonial history of the Netherlands. Referring to the location, the exhibition becomes a vessel, a stage and an amplifier for the voices that think with the help of the oceans, stories and sexuality. The exhibition title is taken from the hydrofeminist essay by Hélène Cixous, The Laugh of the Medusa.

Curated by Angeliki Tzortzakaki, the exhibition presents works by Sophie Utikal (USA), Antonio López Espinosa (Spain), Kristina Õllek (Estonia), Sara Milio (Italy), Enar de Dios Rodríguez (Spain), and Baratto & Mouravas (Italy, Greece).

In addition to the exhibition, there will be a reading group, singing workshop, radio show, and a pop-up bookstore courtesy of San Serriff, organised by Isadora Tomasi and Constanza Bizraelli (CAO).
