In the installation “Über das Meer” three seafarers tell us what the ocean’s freedom means to them and what their dream boats look like.

One captain, one woman who fled by boat, and one cruise vacationer. Being 25, 39 and 75 year old, these three women have quite a different perspective on the world. Still, their dream boats are similar in unexpected aspects.

A naval architct drew plans (general plan drawings) for the three dream boats.

On a scale of 1:1 the drawings cover floor and walls of the exhibition space. The women’s voices fill the room. They tell about their lives, about boats, self-determination, and the longing for freedom.
