in june 1992, a few artists bought the fish troller, ms stubnitz. with the help of some former sailors, they converted it over two years into a seagoing "multimedia art ship". their aim was to contribute to a cultural network between european cities with an active cutural program. in june '94, after their first voyage, the "baltic tour" (st.petersburg-malmoe-hamburg-rostock), they went bankrupt and had to shut down the project.
