Costa Mediterranea Opening Lunch
The cruise Costa Mediterranea is an artificial environment with its own codes and rules. On board you find yourself in a world inspired by different eras and continents, randomly mixed together. Every act, every programme, every meal, every table companion, every outfit is scripted in advance.
Annegien van Doorn, an image maker, stepped aboard the cruise for 5 days. Her life on board was meticulously taken care of. She was in a non-place that became a new everyday reality. Like an ethnographer, she explored the onboard behaviour. By moving, registering, staging, collaging, and rephotographing, she investigated the curious interplay of decor, rules, crew, passengers, customs, rituals and tourism.
During this lunch, we will 'step aboard a cruise' at lunch time ourselves and hear Annegien talk about this bizarre world.
