SNAFU. MEDIA, MYTHS, MIND CONTROL
S.N.A.F.U. Media, Myths, Mind Control is an exhibition dealing with fundamental misunderstanding in hierarchical communication structures.
Since the late 1960s, artists have been working with video “against the grain”, using what is essentially a monitoring technology as a new image and sound medium. The exhibition encompasses a wide range of artistic activity on this theme, from mid-1960s work with film to the very latest video installations and video films. All contributions to S.N.A.F.U. draw their artistic inspiration from people’s failure to communicate with one another and with media.

GRAND HARBOUR TOUR
See one of the world's greatest harbours - the Port of Hamburg. The tour takes you through the different harbour basins to give you a close-up view of giant ships, channels and canals, container terminals and shipyards.
A very special highlight of a visit to Hamburg is a long harbour tour which departs from the Landungsbrücken. In the trip itself the captain gives you a lot of very interesting information about the harbour. Treat yourself to a unique experience - come face to face with a piece of Hamburg steeped in its rich trading tradition!
