Date: 
15.06.2018 to 20.01.2019

A pin-up girl’s picture on a cabin wall speaks of longing during an excruciatingly slow ocean voyage. This exhibition, put together by international top-level artists Saskia Boddeke and Peter Greenaway, studies the loneliness, lust and eroticism amongst sailors Since time immemorial, sailors have been crossing the oceans and staying for long periods away from home. Under such circumstances, many things can be controlled, but not human sexuality. Sex and the Sea illustrates sailors’ fantasies during long sea voyages and the reality that awaited in port. The exhibition describes life at home and at sea, deep emotions and physical needs.
