TO THE WOMEN* OF THE SEVEN SEAS
What: 3 Weeks Residency
Where: Hamburg Port
When: Summer 2022
The Women* of the Seven Seas Network aims to connect women from all aspects of maritime life. Our goal is to make the history, present and future of women* working on and with the seas more visible. Today, women are sailing the seas in greater numbers than ever before – as part of the service crews on cruise ships, or as captains rescuing refugees in the Mediterranean. Women* are chief officers, or managers in ports. They are activists fighting for equal rights and artists exploring hydrarchy as an alternative way of living, they are trying to reclaim ports as public spaces or are fighting for endangered maritime eco-systems. They now have their own stories to tell: stories of escapes, stories of alternative ways of living, stories of a different, liquid, order of things, stories about the fight for equal rights. Could all these stories come together in a hydrarchical feminist movement? Will the growing number of women* working at sea and on questions of maritime life make a difference? Is there a feminism of the seas? Can we build on the solidarity of women and non-binary people at sea to address maritime problems in a different way?
The residency program is hosted by geheimagentur and allows 3-6 Women* of the Seven Seas to come to Hamburg in August 22 for a time of exchange and explorations in one of Europe’s biggest ports. The residencies will be individually planned and will include talks and presentations, as well as time for a specific exploration of the port according to your interests.
