Indispensable Straits

19 Oct 2013

On 17 October I went to a fascinating talk by Piero Zanini on the geographical/cultural/anthropological meaning of the Strait at the Musee Portuaire in Dunkerque. I’ve written it up in my a-n blog here. Interesting that to create Utopia, a strait had to be dug to create an island, so that getting there would require an act of crossing over, engaging with the potential and possibilities between the here and the over there.
