Marco Godinho’s exhibition Written by Water was an all-the-more impressive research how we move today in a world engaged with current migration issues and its relation with the sea. Written by Water is a geopoetic odyssey that takes the reverse path of today’s migratory routes across the Mediterranean, the cradle of modern society and birthplace of founding narratives that underpin our common heritage. The documentation of the exhibition is accompanied by seven essays, which are just as thought-provoking and a wide range of singular works and recent exhibitions of the last fifteen years.

Born in Portugal and dividing his time between Paris and Luxembourg, MARCO GODINHO (*1978, Salvaterra de Magos) studied in Nancy, Lausanne, and Düsseldorf. Since 2006 his work has been shown in solo exhibitions and several group exhibitions, including at the Centre Pompidou, Metz; the CCK – Centro Cultural Kirchner de Buenos Aires; and at The Cube & VT Artsalon, Taipei.
