Telling all about it…
presents the international project “Telling the Baltic” which had the Baltic Sea and storytelling in focus.
Museums, Art galleries and Universities collected stories from fishermen, lighthouse keepers, ferry staff, sailors, islanders and dockworkers around the Baltic sea. More than 100 people were interviewed.
The stories inspired artists to create artworks for the exhibition “Telling the Baltic”. The exhibition was first presented at Blekinge museum and then toured further on to Germany, Poland, Russia, Lithuania and onboard Stena Line ferries between Karlskrona and Gdynia.
Some 30 artists from Poland, Sweden, Denmark, Russia, Lithuania and Germany participated in the exhibition.
All collected stories are today available in digital form in museums around Europe and online
Telling the Baltic was a part of the international art project Art Line
