Everyone seems to be talking about the sea these days. In economic, political, military, technological and philosophical circles. Entire fields of research, the arts, film and video works are dedicated to the sea. The sea – it seems – is everybody’s darling. But what can the sea really offer? What are the effects of such a trend, positive or negative? Is there still place for new concepts? Or will the sea be reduced to a platform for seasteading projects by investors and billionaires? Are the oceans simply another means of producing cultural capital? What about the surface, depth, space? What is the difference between offshore and onshore? What is the relationship between ‘the common human heritage’ and investment’s neologism of a blue bio-economy? What and where are the intersections of submarine communication cables, migration and trade routes – 90% of all goods are transported on waterways – and the recent border negotiations of nations, which are subject to both the decisions of the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf as well as to debates concerning the imminent threat of rising sea levels and loss of territory?
This lecture will think from the point of view of the sea and will combine its critical analysis with visions of alternative futures.
