During the early 20th century, French scientists from the Museum of Natural History in Paris researched traditional fishing methods along the Senegalese and Mauritanian coast. Their mission included tests how to fish more efficiently and how to export all kinds of fish products to the motherland, France. As a consequence, large-scale, exploitative fishing methods were implemented in the region. Nowadays, the shortage of fish in the Senegales waters is one of the causes for migration. Judith Raum invited the German actor Ilja Richter to read from some of the correspondances stored in the archives of the Museum of Natural History in Paris. The audio material is part of the installation, surrounded by blacklight and a wall of white fisher net material.
