Biennale Cruise (2024)

Video, 10:20

“Biennale Cruise” was recorded at the 2019 Venice Biennale and follows the journey of the cruise boat Rhapsody of the Seas through the Canal della Giudecca in Venice, Italy, accompanied by audio of the now infamous “How Dare You” speech that Greta Thunberg gave at the UN set to death metal music. Even though large cruise ships were banned in 2021, this has not totally been enforced. These ships are a pharmakon that, on the one hand, provide jobs and income for the city of Venice, while at the same time stress its fragile ecological system. Cruise ships are heavy polluters and a factor in global warming. The video finishes with a rolling list of environmental offenses caused by these ships.
