Women of the Seven Seas is a group of female artists, researchers and seafarers who locate their work on and with the seven seas. Initiated by the Hamburg-based theory and performance group
geheimagentur and the Female Seafarers’ Association of Nigeria (FESAN), the group explores the question: Will the growing number of women working on and with the sea make a difference and bring an end to maritime patriarchy? It is a structure that has grown out of wars, colonialism, and the exploitation of natural resources and should be restructured. After the opening performance, geheimagentur invites you to a salon with music and drinks to introduce the real Women of the Seven Seas: Three fabulous representatives of the FESAN and the artist Mary Mattingly from New York are guests in Hamburg and will speak on their work during the evenings; while Shefarer Nova Ruth plays a live concert from aboard her boat project Arka Kinari in the Indian Ocean.
