Adrian Paci’s (b. 1969, Albania) The Column (2013) follows the journey of a block of marble from a quarry in China to Paris as it’s arduously carved onboard a ship by stonemasons. Cengiz Tekin (b. 1977, Turkey) looks at human cargo in Just Before Paradise (2015), where young male migrants stand waist deep in the sea contemplating an uncertain future.
Jūrmala (2010–16) by Laura Horelli, Nina Lassila, Agnese Luse, Angela Melitopoulos, Eléonore de Montesquiou, Tanja Ostojić, Meggie Schneider, Isabell Spengler and Gitte Villesen takes its name from a beach in Latvia, the setting for this collaborative film by nine Berlin-based women artists and filmmakers.
