The Forgotten Space

Event info

The sea is forgotten until disaster strikes, but perhaps the biggest seagoing disaster is the global supply chain which leads the world economy into the abyss. Allan Sekula and Noël Burch's award-winning film essay offers a lucid and lyrical document of worker's conditions, the inhuman scale of containerised sea trade and the secret lives of port cities. Presented as part of The Glasgow School of Art's Friday Event lecture programme, The Forgotten Spaceis screened in collaboration with Stills, Edinburgh where Allan Sekula is currently exhibiting his most recent series of photographs 'Ship of Fools'.


Please note that this is a ticketed event (first come first served). Tickets can obtained from the Fine Art Office from Monday 13th of February 2012
