Summary:

Coinciding with the launch of the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, TBA21–Academy in collaboration with CNR-ISMAR presents an investigative exhibition by Armin Linke exploring contemporary challenges facing our oceans. Drawing upon rare footage of the deep-sea and interviews with leading scientists, policymakers and experts, the exhibition grapples with the tension between ecological protection of our oceans and political and economic exploitation. Culmination of a three-year research project, Prospecting Ocean presents a rich choreography of multimedia footage and archival materials exhibited in the former headquarters of the Institute of Marine Sciences (CNR-ISMAR), including several multi-channel video installations and a new series of photographs. Linke lays bare an intricate network of dynamics, dissecting how information is negotiated between scientific, legal, and economic entities and institutions, on both local and international levels. Prospecting Ocean also features a selection of documents from CNR-ISMAR and critical texts analyzing the legal, political, and economic infrastructures presiding over the allocation of ocean resources.
