Artist Statement:


    MS Stubnitz, a former deep-sea fishing trawler, was restaured during 1993 into a mobile forum for the arts. The ship has been equipped with a spatial and technical infrastructure for cultural production, studios for design and new media. Under the patronage of the Council of Europe and the Lord mayor of the City of Rostock, the ship launched cultural projects in Germany in 1993.

    1994 is the year of MS Stubnitz’ Baltic Tour. From July to September, the ship cruises the Baltic Sea, providing cultural platforms for different events: St. Petersburg International Forum, Malmo Baltic Jubilee, ISEA’94 Helsinki and Hamburg. During the Baltic Tour, a cultural contact forum for the Baltic countries will be founded. The ship will activate cooperation between the cultural interest groups of the Baltic countries by organizing Contact Media workshops during the tour.

    In ISEA’94 Helsinki, MS Stubnitz will present works from the Baltic Tour’94. The show of permanent works and artist-inresidence projects will be completed with works by Baltic artists from St. Petersburg, Malmo and Helsinki. The main focus of the Baltic Tour works is on ecology and environment.
