Calypso 36°21: On drifting

Book Corner


Ocean Space

20,00€ | All proceeds will be donated to SOS Mediterranee

On Sunday September 12, from 2:00pm to 6:00pm, Justine Daquin and Zoé Le Voyer, co-founders of the Calypso 36°21 collective and participants in the Ocean Fellowship program, will be at Ocean Space presenting "On drifting" to visitors, a participatory lexicon imagined and produced between 2018 and 2021 as part of the “out.of.the.blue.map” curatorial program.

This book gathers contributions proposed by a multitude of humans whose work summons, explores and questions the liminal dimension of Mediterranean borderscapes. Poets, lawyers, navigators, activists, artists, architects, researchers, writers, philosophers and political scientists have been collaborating with Calypso36°21 since 2018 to create this final edition.

Conceived as an alternative cartography of the [fluid+solid] border landscapes of the Mediterranean, On drifting was conceived in the manner of an atlas and is to be read from shore to shore. On drifting responds to the urgent need to rethink knowledge production processes, by experimenting with the creation of an inclusive, shared, and multiple archive. Through the images and texts it gathers, the lexicon navigates through territories prey to liminality, a state of in-betweenness, punctuated by ruptures and thresholds


You can take a look at “On drifting” when it will be on sale at Ocean Space from 2pm to 6pm on Sunday September 12.

The cost of the book is €20.00 (payment in cash). All proceeds will be donated to SOS Mediterranee.

Justine Daquin & Zoé Le Voyer

Justine Daquin and Zoé Le Voyer are the co-founders of Calypso36°21, a women-led French Moroccan curatorial collective created in 2018. Since 2019, they have been directing Out.of.the.blue.map, an itinerant curatorial program exploring the liminality of Mediterranean borderscapes. Aware of the urgent need to rethink knowledge production processes, the collective experiments with the creation of participatory archives. In recent years, its members have curated and produced exhibitions, workshops and original works, each of which addressed the notions of liminality, memory, empathy and the experience of the multitude.
