We screen Noël Burch and Allan Sekula’s The Forgotten Space (2010) as part of the Projection Series #11: An Oceanic Feeling programme, curated by Govett-Brewster’s 2017 International Film Curator in Residence Erika Balsom.
The artists undertake an expansive and essayistic investigation of global capital through an unassuming mid-century invention: the shipping container. This innovation revolutionised the transport of goods by sea, dramatically increasing volume, decreasing costs, and reshaping the world economy. In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, the filmmakers travel across the oceans, interviewing diverse individuals who have little in common save for the fact that their lives have been touched in some way by the ‘floating warehouses’ that allow factories to become ‘ship-like’ and relocate overseas in search of cheap labour.
