Ocean of Blood Project in India scroll to the bottom or check out:

SWIMMING CITIES is a diverse group of artists, builders, and
performers who come together each year and embark on a challenging
large-scale project. Originally united through the international
artist Swoon, the group traces its roots to the DIY raft project on
the Mississippi River, the “Miss Rockaway Armada.” Taking a new
waterway each year our projects create a vivid community of artists
floating into towns to present an interactive environment which
encompasses art, sculpture, music and performance. The uncommon
talents of our members interact in an organic design process in a
unique form of living art. Our previous projects include THE SWIMMING
CITIES OF SWITCHBACK SEA on the Hudson River for Deitch Projects and
THE SWIMMING CITIES OF SERENISSIMA across the Adriatic Sea for the
Venice Biennale.

For Swimming Cities upcoming project, they will construct a fleet of
small sculptural river craft at the foothills of the Himalayas, in a
cultural exchange with local South Asian artists and artisans. The
hand-crafted boats will traverse the Ganges River from Kanpur to the
holy city of Varanasi stopping at towns and villages along the way to
meet locals and commission crafted embellishments for the boats in the
local styles. Upon arrival in Varanasi the boats will merge together
into a great floating island stage. In collaboration with local
artists and musicians they will produce a performance inspired by
their adventure and the immense cultural history of the Ganges.

Aktion Auktion” is an exhibition project with works donated from 130 danish artists. The art work will be sold at an auction as benefit for iraqi refugees currently treated by deportation. 
The purpose of the project is to give economic support to the the iraqi refugees and raise attention to their case and current situation. 
Despite massive public demand to grant the iraqi refugees humanitarian residence permits the danish government has chosen to start the deportations of the refugees arrested in Brorsons church in august. 
Last week 22 Iraqis were deported, five of whom were, instantly upon arriving in bagdad, arrested by the iraqi authorities, their current whereabouts are now unknown.
The rest of the deported are left with nearly no money, no connections and no knowledge of bagdad and a very uncertain future.
The deportations has forced the remaining iraqis to go underground, and they are now being searched for by the danish authorities.
They need support now more than ever.

“Aktion Auktion” is a declaration of solidarity with a group of people whom the danish government wishes to forcefully deport to a country that the same government has helped topple into war and chaos. 

“Aktion Auktion” is direct support to asylum seekers who should long since have been granted humanitarian residence permit.

The opening of the exhibition will take place on thursday the 10th of september. From 16-21. 

Høkerboderne 8, Den Hvide Kødby, Vesterbro, Copenhagen. 

The artwork will be available for purchase via
