Ships And Still More Ships, 2015

Ships And Still More Ships, 2015
ELISABETTA BENASSI Romestraat 11, 8400 Oostende

‘Ships And Still More Ships’. This was the ambitious slogan of the Black Star Line Steamship Corporation, a shipping company that came into existence in 1919. It was an initiative by Marcus Garvey, who wanted Afro-Americans and African goods to play a bigger role in the world’s economy. Elisabetta Benassi (b. 1966, Rome) highlights an exciting piece of forgotten history.

There is a video artwork by the same artist in Europacentrum, about a rudderless ship gradually running aground on the coastline.
