Looking at the sea as geopolitical spaceExhibition and symposium
Hydrarchy looks at the Mediterranean Basin, the Suez Canal, besieged Gaza, and the broader North African context, from the perspective of their waters and the actions that take place upon them. The sea, the ship, and the legal and political construct of ‘offshore’ allows a profound shift of cultural perspective, prioritising transition and flux over fixity, state control and mappability. While land borders are perceived to be fixed and unchangeable, the attempts of ‘pirates’, ‘illegal’ migrants, and flotilla activists show that territorial logics can be escaped or challenged.
It is no surprise, then, that actions that take place at sea are becoming primary foci within the political logics of globalization. Flotillas, abandoned fleets, pirates, portable seas, migrant journeys, and the mystical language of navigation all filter into the artworks and discussions of Hydrarchy, which take diverse approaches in highlighting, directly or indirectly, the means by which maritime politics revolutionise our thinking.
